Speeches and public engagements

Scope and Content

This subseries contains material relating to speeches given by Platt at dinners and public events, such as openings and prizegivings, but does not include lectures (covered in PLA/5). Most items consist of a menu or a programme, with manuscript notes for Platt's speech, but some items comprise only notes or a menu, and others contain additional material relating to the event.

There are a number of papers relating to speeches and addresses throughout the Platt papers, in particular in the series of Lectures and Working Papers (PLA/5) and the Historical Files (PLA/12). There are many photographs of public engagements in the series of Photographic Material (PLA/11).


This series has been divided into two subseries - Menus and speech notes, and Nurses prizegiving.
