Brittle Bone Society Archive comes to the University of Dundee

Archive Services are very pleased to announce that the archive of the Brittle Bone Society (UK) has been given to the University of Dundee.

Founded in Dundee in 1968 the Brittle Bone Society is the only UK wide organisation providing support to people affected by the bone condition Osteogenesis Imperfecta (OI). The archive is significant in tracing the history of this important charity and developments in treatment of the condition. Changes in fundraising approaches, marketing, membership and administration can all be exploredthrough the records. As a UK charity based in Dundee the collection has strong local significance, but also reflects the impact of the charity on the development of similar organisations overseas. This photograph shows Caroline Brown with Margaret Grant, who established the Society, and Sheena Moreland who has worked for the Society for several years.

Archive Services hopes to shortly undertake an oral history project with members of the Society.
