Scope and Content

Series of research notes on bone tumours and drafts of lectures given by Platt, sometimes with lists of slides. The series covers malignant bone sarcomas and giant-cell tumours. Lectures have been identified where possible, but Platt gave a large number of lectures on bone tumours from the 1930s until the 1960s. This series includes research notes particularly on survival statistics for types of bone tumours.

See also PLA/1/6 for Platt's clinical work on bone tumours, 1919-1974, including statistics, summaries and slides which would probably have been used in these lectures.


Left in essentially original order, which approximates chronological order, but typescript drafts for the same lecture have been bundled together as one item.
