Aileen C. Carr Set XVIII (1919-1922)

Scope and Content

Collection of 4 photographs of staff of Bedford Physical Training College for the years 1919-1922. The photographs were donated by Aileen Carr of Set XVIII who subsequently returned to teach Massage and Medical Gymnastics at the College in 1923-1930.

The patient was treated by Aileen Carr.
