Administrative / Biographical History

Mrs. Fletcher (nee Inman) is a great-granddaughter of Dr. Thomas Inman and Dr. Michael Inman a great-grandson of Dr. Thomas Inman.

Dr. Thomas Inman was a part-time Lecturer in the Liverpool (Royal) Infirmary School of Medicine, successively on Botany, Medical Jurisprudence, Materia Medica with Therapeutics, and the Principles with the Practice of Medicine, 1846-61 (according to the title page of his On The Restoration of Health, 2nd ed., 1872, and University College Liverpool Calendar... 1899-1900, p.245), and served as Secretary to the School 1847-55 (Henry A. Ormerod, The Early History of the Liverpool Medical School from 1834 to 1877 [1953], p.32).

Acquisition Information

Originals loaned and photocopies given by Mrs Dorothy M Fletcher and Dr Michael Inman per Dr Cecil Gray; 16 Jan 1987 and later

In February 2009 Dr Michael Inman deposited the Papers of Dr Thomas Inman which he had retained. This material includes many original documents which were previously loaned for photocopying and formed the basis of these papers. When adding this material to this collection we have added a note to indicate that the photocopy has been removed and the original document replace it.

Related Material

The photographs (D398/1) were copied by the University's Central Photographic Service (C.P.S.), the negative references for the same being given in brackets in the list (e.g. 87/511).

By reference to Mr. W.A. Lee's Catalogue of the Books in the Liverpool Medical Institution Library (LMI) (to the end of the Nineteenth Century, 1968) none of the published work of Dr. Inman which appears as D398/12 in this list is held by the L.M.I.'s Library. It appears that the L.M.I. Library, however, holds other publications by Dr. Inman and also two volumes (MS.) of his lectures on materia medica, n.d.
