Baronetcy

Scope and Content

Platt was made a baronet in the New Years honours of 1958. This sub-subseries largely comprises congratulatory letters and telegrams, but also contains some cuttings relating to Platt's Baronetcy. Congratulatory letters were sent by a large number of individuals and institutions. Some of the letters were arranged into labelled bundles, arranged by the sender of the letter, for example, fellows of the Royal College of Surgeons and 'V.I.P.s'. Many of the letters were in unmarked bundles which have been retained and given brief descriptive titles. Many of the letters were marked to show that Platt had replied.
