Scope and Content
Administrative / Biographical History
Founded in 1909 as the Scottish Western Asylums Research Institute, it was reorganised in 1932 and its name changed to the West of Scotland Neuro-Psychiatric Research Institute. It worked in cooperation with the University of Glasgow from a laboratory at Gartnavel Royal Hospital. After the creation of the National Health Service in 1948 , the Institute was managed by the Board of Management for Glasgow Royal Mental Hospital until 1960 when it was wound up and the residue of its funds were transferred to the Henderson Research Scholarship.
