UCL department: 
Museums & Collections

The attached letters are copies of correspondence between Professor Michael Worton, Vice-Provost of University College London and Dr Jane Collins, Chief Executive of Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children. They letters are held in the administration files for the UCL Pathology Collection.

They evidence the official transfer of stewardship of the GOSH pathology collections to UCL Museums and Collections.

Although the collection had been based at the Royal Free Hospital since 1985 in was not until 2006 (over 20 years later) that an official record of the transfer was made.
