Biographical / Historical

Dulcie Barron travelled to Uganda to work as a secretary in the Mental Hospital Division of its health services in August 1955. She appears in a group photograph of the administrative staff of the Mulago Hospital, Kampala, dated July 1956 (Y3045W/128). Her name does not appear in the Uganda staff list for 1 July 1957, so it appears that her employment was of short term.
