Papers of Linda Armstrong relating to the history of the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists

  • GB 249 ARM
  • Collection
  • 2020 - 2021

Collection of papers created by Linda Armstrong, and some collaboration by Jois Stansfield: researchers interested in the history of the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists, and the Speech and Language Therapy profession in general.

Papers were researched and created between 1999 - 2021 and many were revised and edited just prior to deposit in January 2021. Sources used for the research included the papers of the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists held within the University of Strathclyde Archives and Special Collections, and also papers and files still held by the College.

The papers comprise: lists covering a range of historical areas relating to the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists and the profession in general such as Journal articles, College conferences, and committee members; and analytical articles covering topics such as how the College was formed, the change in the name of the profession, and analysis of the content of the College’s news bulletin.

Laurie Flynn papers on the asbestos industry

  • GB 249 FLYNN
  • Collection
  • 1893 - 2005

Laurie Flynn's papers on the asbestos industry span the period 1893-2005 and contain information primarily on the occupational health hazards posed by asbestos. This interest is centred on the activities of Cape Asbestos Company Ltd (and all corresponding names including shell entities) as well as the company's overseas subsidiaries.

There are 4 main series:

  • mining in South Africa, 1938-2005
  • asbestos litigation in North America, 1934-2005
  • asbestos in the UK, 1953-2005
  • Cape Asbestos corporate papers, 1893-2000

The focus of the collection is on employer negligence concerning health and safety, as argued in compensation lawsuits brought against the company and its subsidiaries.

Access to the wealth of business and legal papers brought to light primarily through lawsuits led Flynn to question whether multinational enterprises are as progressive as some commentators (notably business historians) have made out. The depositions, affidavits and court exhibits contained in this collection illuminate the role played by corporations and their representatives (in particular company medics and corporate lawyers) in suppressing scientific evidence concerning the risks of asbestos exposure. The Flynn papers also illustrate the lengths to which Cape Asbestos’ legal advisers went to create complex and confusing company structures in order to distance the parent company from liability ("corporate veil").

The collection includes some of Flynn’s notebooks and other background research materials for journalistic projects (among them extensive interviews with South African miners and Glasgow laggers), scripts and transcripts for documentaries, press cuttings, scientific literature, and correspondence with health and safety experts, medical specialists, environmental consultants, tort lawyers and asbestos ban campaigners.

In addition to documenting Flynn’s sustained interest in the workings of multinational asbestos enterprise, the collection also includes a little material relating to gold and diamond mining and the medical impact of atomic testing.
