Archives of the Dublin city hospitals 20 Nov 2013

The key goals of the project are to preserve and make available for research the archives of 10 Dublin hospitals and a public nursing organisation. The bodies played a critical role in the development of institutional medical care in Dublin City and beyond from the early 18th century. The project involves the archival processing and cataloguing the archives of the hospitals and organisation described at 10 (a) below, with preservation and conservation work carried out. The main objectives of the project are to safeguard the long term preservation of these documents by ensuring intellectual and physical control and to make them available to researchers. The National Archives seeks funding for the retention of the services of a qualified archivist and the part-time services of a preservation assistant, with a conservator working on specific tasks over a period of 12 months. The project would be given general oversight and direction by a project committee in the National Archives. These collections are in the custody of the National Archives but are currently not available to researchers or for staff to answer queries because we are not in a position to carry out the preservation, archival and conservation work required and are prohibited by government embargo from engaging the additional staff needed for the work. The National Archives will provide all of the other supports necessary for this work including archival and conservation advice, working space, equipment, supplies of archival quality packing materials, overheads and administration.

St Brendan's Mental Hospital Grangegorman - Preservation and Access project 23 Nov 2011

The key goals of this project are to preserve and make accessible for research the archives of St. Brendan's Mental Hospital, Grangegorman, Dublin. Opened in 1814 as the Richmond Lunatic Asylum, prior to the establishment of a countrywide network of district asylums, this was the earliest and remained the largest of the Irish public asylums. The archives comprise the most extensive and most important collection of hospital records of any type in Ireland and are an unrivalled source for research into the history of the treatment of mental illness and many aspects of social, economic and cultural history. Currently stored in very poor conditions, they urgently require safeguarding in archival custody. The National Archives is seeking funding for staff for 1 year to carry out the initial archival, preservation and conservation processing of this collection, thereby ensuring its security. We estimate from our previous experience of hospital records that it will take 2 years to carry out full processing. While the National Archives is currently active in accessioning the archives of some smaller regional mental hospitals, we are prohibited by government embargo from taking on the staff necessary for processing a transfer on the scale of Grangegorman, although we are prepared to support the project in other ways should this application be successful. Archival and conservation scoping surveys of the archives, carried out in February 2011 and funded by a grant from the Wellcome Trust, recommended work by an experienced Archivist, supported by others, for approximately 2 years and by a Conservator and Preservation Assistant for at least 6 months. See archival report by J. Etherton and conservation report by J. Rhys-Lewis attached.

Peamont Sanatorium Archives (including the Women's National Health Association of Ireland Archives)- Preservation and Access Project 13 Jul 2010

The project involves arranging, packing and cataloguing the archives of Peamount Sanatorium, the most important sanatorium and tuberculosis hospital in Ireland, which functioned between 1912 and 2004, and the archives of the Women's National Health Association of Ireland, founded in 1907 by Lady Aberdeen, wife of the Irish Lord Lieutenant, to promote public health. The Women's National Health Association was instrumental in founding Peamount Sanatorium. Both collections are presently stored on the Peamount Hospital site which continues to operate as a medical facility. The archives of the sanatorium, consisting of some 800 archival boxes, commence in 1912 and represent the largest surviving collection of records of a tuberculosis hospital in Ireland. The collection comprises several hundred bound volumes, 40,000 patient index cards and 30,000 patient files. The archives of the Women's National Health Association of Ireland, consisting of some 100 archival boxes, commence in 1905 and relate to the wide range of health initiatives with which it was involved. The bulk of these records are presently stored in conditions that are not conducive to long term preservation or research access, and require safeguarding by being placed in archival custody. The National Archives seeks funding to permit the retention of the services of a qualified archivist for two years. The project would be given general oversight and direction by a project team from the National Archives, to which the archives will be transferred. It is intended that there will be an initial records conservation survey by a conservator and the collection would receive appropriate conservation treatment at a later stage.
