Scope and Content
Administrative / Biographical History
In 1951 Sir Arthur Sims, a New Zealand businessman, endowed the Sims Black Travelling Professorship at the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists in the names of his wife Lady Sims and his daughter Mrs Lewis Black, both of whom were committed to its aims.
It was set up to fund overseas travel within the Commonwealth in order to assist the advancement of obstetrics and gynaecology through lecturing, teaching, investigating or engaging in research and to further the exchange of knowledge between medical practitioners in different countries.
