Dorset House, the first School of Occupational Therapy in England, was established by its visionary Medical Director, Dr Elizabeth Casson, in the latter part of the 1920s. Over the years the School has moved from its original base in Bristol to Bromsgrove, and finally to Oxford, firstly in Nissen Huts in the grounds of the Churchill Hospital and then to London Road in 1964. In 1992 Dorset House School of Occupational Therapy became part of Oxford Polytechnic, which, later that year, was conferred with university status.
The collection comprises acquisitions from former staff and students of Dorset House School of Occupational Therapy, and related organisations. The collection complements the archive of the School itself (DocRef DH). The collection is divided into series for each acquisition, so that the provenance of the material is maintained.
