Dott CSAC 55/9/77 Description of the collection The papers were received from Mrs. Dott (widow), via the Scottish Record Office, Edinburgh. Norman McOmish Dott was descended from a Huguenot refugee family (originally D'Ott) which settled in Scotland about 1680. His fother and grandfather were fine art dealers and picture framers in Edinburgh, and after education at George Heriot's School (see esp. A.32-A.38 for Dott's continuing links with and affection for the school), he was himself apprenticed as a joiner and an engineer. In 1913 he suffered serious injury to a hip in an accident, and during his hospitalization and convalescence the observation of the practice of medicine determined his future career and he entered Edinburgh University Medical School in 1914. Awarded the Syme Surgical Fellowship in 1921, he worked with Sir Edward Sharpey-Schafer, and his studies on the Pituitary led to the award of a Rockefeller Fellowship which enabled him to work as Assistant Resident to Harvey Cushing at Peter Bent Brigham Hospital, Boston, 1923-24 (see under Cushing’ in index of corres- pondenis). With the notable exception of this year, from which he returned, in his own words, “a Cushing disciple, with missionary zeal to establish modern Surgical Neurology in Edinburgh", and a briefer visit to Cushing in 1929, Dott remained in his native city He was a and served with Jefferson, Cairns and others on the Brain Injuries Committee of the documented in the collection; see the introductory notes to the separate sections on pps. 11, M.R.C.j during the Second World War (see B.17-B.35).

Dott CSAC 55/9/77 Fuller accounts of Doit's life and career, and of the honours and awards he re- ceived, can be found in section A, esp. A.1-A.5. Dott said of himself that "perhaps dearest to his heart is the Freedom of the City of Edinburgh, 1962, being the first award of this honour to a doctor since it was conferred on Lord Lister and on Sir James Simpson about a century earlier, and also the Honorary Fellowship of the Royal Society of Medi- cine, being a recognition of a 'prophet' in his own land". A collection of Dott's Medals and Certificates of honour is held at the premises of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh. Photographs, charts and diagrams related to Dott's research and teaching are held at the Department of Surgical Neurology, University of Edinburgh Medical School, Western General Hospital, Edinburgh.
