Scope and Content

Platt was knighted in the New Years honours of 1948. This sub-subseries contains congratulatory letters and telegrams sent to Platt on his knighthood. Congratulations were sent by many of Platt's friends and colleagues, including the Lord Mayor of Manchester, Anuerin Bevan, Alfred Ernest Barclay, H. Jackson Burrows, W. Mansfield Cooper, Professor Tylecote, Sir Thomas Fairbank, Sir John S.B. Stopford, and Catherine Chisholm. There are also congratulatory letters from hospitals, universities and associations.


Items are retained in their original order; the letters were held in a ring-binder and the typescript list of letters was loose in the binder.
