File: "Jefferson Letters from Russia"

Scope and Content

This file contains papers created by Geoffrey and Gertrude Jefferson during and shortly after their time in Russia, including correspondence, official documents, draft reports and a photograph. These items were probably gathered together by Antony Jefferson to lend to Michael Harmen in preparation for his book; many are annotated by Michael Harmen. There are also typescript extracts from letters from Geoffrey to Gertrude, prepared by Michael Harmen from a dictation by Antony Jefferson. These extracts, along with the draft reports, give insight into the conditions for surgeons working on the Eastern Front during the First World War.


The original order within the file has been retained.
