Description of this SeriesDescription of this Series
  • How to use the Records
    This series comprises a volume containing memoranda sent to staff of the Hospital for the Insane, Kew (VA 2840) by either the Hospital's Secretary or Medical Superintendent. Individual memoranda pertain to internal operational matters, distinguishing the volume from VPRS 7555 which contains memos sent to the Hospital by the Lunacy Department.

    Memos have been pasted into the volume in chronological order by date of issue. An alphabetical subject index is located in the front section of the volume which refers users to the page containing the relevant memo.

    This volume was sent to PRO in November 1992 by the Museum of Victoria which in turn had acquired it in undisclosed circumstances.
