File: Proposed New Medical School

Scope and Content

Papers relating to plans to build a new University medical school at the 'Island Site,' between Oxford Road and Upper Brook Street. This location was very close to where the Stopford Building (University Medical School) was eventually constructed. The file contains extensive correspondence about the plans and the minutes of the Island Site Committee which oversaw the project. There are copies of architect's plans of the proposed development. There is also correspondence with the Manchester Royal Infirmary, St. Mary's Hospitals, and the Royal Eye Hospital concerning their plans for post-war extensions at this location.
