Abstract:

Chapter in a book to celebrate the Quincentenary of the University of Aberdeen. The chapter outlines the origins and the work of the Medical Sociology Unit at the University of Aberdeen. It grew out of the MRC's Obstetric Medicine Research Unit, set up at Aberdeen University in 1955 to look at how factors such as housing conditions and poverty affect women's reproductive health and childbirth. When Director Sir Dugald Baird retired in 1965, the Unit became the MRC Medical Sociology Unit under Raymond Illsley. It moved from Aberdeen to Glasgow University in 1984, with Sally Macintyre as its new Director.
