Strasbourg, 1938

Scope and Content

Photocopy typescript report of a visit by Platt and D Lloyd Griffiths to Strasbourg in June 1938, with original file cover. Platt and Lloyd Griffiths visited the clinic of Professor Rene Leriche, Strasbourg, where they saw a technique of arteriography and a number of orthopaedic cases, and the clinic of Dr Leveuf, Bretonreau Hospital, Paris, where they were shown a walking machine used for examining muscle action. The photocopy was probably made in 1978 and shows an original typescript copy annotated in manuscript by Platt. The visit appears to have been an official one, but it is not stated on whose behalf it was made.
