OUTLINE OF THE CAREER OF FRED STRATTON Stratton was born in Manchester on 8 October 1913. He was educated at Central Manchester High School before winning scholarships to the University of Manchester in 1931. He graduated B.Sc. in 1934 and went on to study as a medical doctor, qualifying MB, ChB in 1937. He became MD in 1945. Stratton began work as a doctor in General Practice but in 1940, following the outbreak of war, he joined the Manchester Blood Depot. Initially he served as Medical Officer but was soon appointed Deputy Regional Transfusion Officer. The post-war health service reforms saw the creation of twelve regional blood transfusion centres. Transfusion Centre (later the Manchester Blood Centre), a post he held to retirement in 1980. He combined administrative, fund-raising and clinical responsibilities with active research in the area of He was made Reader in 1967 and in 1977 was appointed to a Personal Chair. Stratton received a D.Sc. in 1957. Stratton was a Founder Fellow of the Royal College of Pathologists and a Fellow of retirement he worked on antiglobulin reagents and haemagglutination, in association with D. Voak. blood group serology, making a particular contribution to the detection of blood group antibodies. In Centre came under the Regional Hospital Board, Director of the North West Regional Blood Stratton was appointed Regional Blood Transfusion Officer and in 1949, when the Manchester the Royal College of Physicians. In the early 1980s he was a founder member and first President of Stratton died on 2 April 2001. He was survived by his wife Louisa and two sons. In recognition of his services in the field of blood transfusion Stratton was awarded the 1963 Oliver Memorial Award, the 1978 Karl Landsteiner Award of the American Association of Blood Banks and in 1987 received the British Blood Transfusion Society's highest honour, the James Blundell Award. In 1947 Stratton was appointed Special Lecturer in Human Serology at the University of Manchester. the British Blood Transfusion Society. F. Stratton NCUACS 126/12/03 DESCRIPTION OF THE COLLECTION The material is presented in the order given in the List of Contents. The material is not extensive and most of the documentation dates from later in Stratton’s career. It covers the period 1959-2003. Section A, Biographical, is very slight. It presents obituaries of Stratton, his curriculum vitae and list of publications. Section B, Research, is not extensive. There is some general and miscellaneous material, including schemes for Medical Research Council trials from 1978, a little documentation of research work of colleagues C.M. Giles and A.H. Merry, and material relating to a proposed private/public cooperation on blood preservation. There are subsections relating to Stratton’s interest in the rare condition Angioneurotic Oedema, and to the Working Party on the Standardisation of Antiglobulin Reagents, a joint working party of the International Society of Blood Transfusion and the International Centre for Standardization in Haematology. There is a short sequence of correspondence, chiefly relating to haematology, and non-textual material, principally slides but also including a photograph, marked ‘Very valuable’ of ‘Haemolysing anti P’. Section C, Lectures and publications, is the largest in the collection. It comprises principally a sequence of drafts 1959-1986, mostly relating to public and invitation lectures delivered worldwide — slides for lectures, and offprints of some of Stratton’s publications. many of his lectures are noted as being delivered to overseas audiences or at international administrative papers, organisation of meetings, speeches given by Stratton at BBTS occasions and documentation of the conception and establishment of the BBTS - membership, constitution, funding, relations with other bodies - and its early days during Stratton’s inaugural Presidency, including Section D, British Blood Transfusion Society, covers the period 1981-1991. It offers significant Stratton travelled widely - on blood transfusion topics. The bulk of the drafts date from the 1970s and 1980s. In preparing a lecture or paper Stratton corrected and revised his drafts extensively and the material bears witness to the care he took. The section includes some illustrative material, chiefly for There is also an index of correspondents. Section E, Visits and conferences, is a presentation of a little material relating to visits made and conferences attended. The range and frequency of Stratton’s travel is better evidenced in section C; awards made. conferences. F.

Angioneurotic oedema is a rare form of allergy that causes severe swelling of the skin, the lining of the nose, the mouth, the throat or the digestive tract. is triggered by an insect sting or by contact with certain foodstuffs, plants, drugs or pollens. The swelling may persist for hours or even days; the main danger arises when angioneurotic oedema affects the larynx. In such a case the swelling can lead to complete closure of the airway that can be life threatening. 1968-1974 Correspondence concerning suspected cases B.27 1968-1969 F.
