Scope and content

Nancy Tait taught herself about asbestos, then proceeded to produce her own literature on the subject. These texts often were self-published and usually written by Nancy Tait herself. But the literature to which Tait contributed included also scientific publications in peer-reviewed journals. Of the earliest of these, no trace has been found in the collection. The piece in question is J S Gilson, N Tait, J Zussman, and R G Burns (1977) 'Medicine and mineralogy and discussion', Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London, A, 1336. 286 (1336): 585–592.
