File: Department of Military Studies

Scope and Content

Military Studies was a small department established in 1967, with close connections to the Department of Government. It was headed by Michael Elliot-Bateman, and provided courses for several degree subjects. The file includes a memorandum of 1967 by Elliot-Bateman on his plans for the department, and a progress report "Problems in the development of military studies" (1975).

The file was previously kept with the Military Education Committee file (VCA/7/571) although as it has no close relation with this subject; it has been treated as an independent file for archival purposes. The University Archives has a small collection of papers relating to this department ( DMS).
