The Virginia Parker Prize for Excellence in Psychiatry

Established by the late Virginia Dillon (nee Parker) who was the head of the Health Science Library from 1967 until her retirement. She kindly made a generous donation to the Department of Psychiatry for my use. I persuaded her to allocate some of this money to the Faculty of Medicine to be used as a prize for a senior student. She agreed, and kindly honoured me in naming the prize. After Miss Parker left Kingston, we remained friends, corresponding and visiting.
