Brief glimpse into the history of the Wellcome Unit, Oxford

I just stumbled across a brief but nonetheless interesting article: John Pickstone’s A brief history of medical history which is of interest to me as it throws some light on history of medicine at Oxford and the Wellcome Unit for the History of Oxford itself.

I have no idea when it was written and there is no date anywhere to be seen in the article but I suspect it was published c 2008.

There are a number mentions of important Oxford people, including for instance Charles Webster, Margaret Pelling and Mark Harrison. Of course the history of the Wellcome Unit Library itself is reflected in the history of the Unit itself, so for those interested, here is something to read up on:
