Writing

Research correspondence

In roughly chronological order, starting with Nancy Tait's interactions with and concerning the Asbestos Information Committee (AIC).

Tait's asbestos research began as a quest for convincing answers regarding the death of her husband William Ashton Tait, who died of mesothelioma in 1968.

Comparatively little material from the early years (1969-1978) of Tait's investigations survives. Gaps include:

  • Tait's systematic study, begun in 1972, of the state of knowledge regarding the health risks of asbestos, resulting in her publication of 'Asbestos kills' (1976)
  • Tait's application for the Churchill fellowship, awarded to her early in 1976, and correspondence relating to her extensive travels in Europe in 1976
  • growing out of this, correspondence and papers documenting Tait's work with the Study Group on Asbestos of the Economic and Social Committee of the EEC (Section for Protection of the Environment, Public Health and Consumer Affairs) from 1977; much of this, including Nancy Tait's correspondence with Petra Kelly 1976-1981, can be consulted in the Petra Kelly Archive, Heinrich-Böll-Stiftung, Berlin
