dc.description.abstractInterview with Peter Elwood, conducted by Dr Andy Ness, for the History of Twentieth Century Medicine Research Group, UCL, 14 April 2000 and 28 February 2001. Transcribed by Mrs Jaqui Carter, and edited by Professor Tilli Tansey and Dr Hugh Thomas. Professor Peter Elwood FRCP OBE (b. 1930) was a member of the scientific staff of the Epidemiological Research Unit (South Wales) from 1963 and its Director from 1974 until its closure in 1995. He qualified in medicine at Queen’s University, Belfast, in 1954 and worked with John Pemberton from 1958 to 1963. He was to retire in 1995 but has ignored the advice and still works almost full time, supported by Janie Hughes and Janet Pickering, a statistician in the unit from 1977 to 1982. He holds Honorary Professorships in the Department of Epidemiology, Statistics and Public Health Medicine in the University of Wales College of Medicine and the Department of Social Medicine in the University of Bristol, and is a Visiting Professor in the Department of Science at the University of Ulster.en_US
