ST BARTS CATERING - "TO FEED US OR TO ANNOY US?"
5 January 2018
In a special guest post, Amanda Engineer, Project Archivist at St Bartholomew’s Hospital Archive, looks to newly catalogued material to answer the question posed by one unhappy customer, “Does the Catering Company exist to feed us or to annoy us?”
Two surviving Complaints books, 1885-1954, and a minute book of the College Catering Company, 1936-1953, available to researchers at St Bartholomew’s Hospital Archive and Museum, provide a vivid insight into the eating experience and expectations of student doctors at Bart’s during this period.
