Dinner Speeches

Scope and Content

Wilkinson's handwritten notes for various dinner speeches he made, including those to the Manchester Medico-Legal Society and the Aberdeen University (Manchester) Club. There are also a number of invitations to lectures, dinners and other events as well as a large number of newspaper and magazine cuttings. The subject matter of most of the cuttings appear to bear little or no relevance to Wilkinson's career and the content of his speeches but rather appear to have been chosen as a source of anecdotes.
