Headington Hill Hall- The forgotten years- 1939 -1958

ByDawn Griffis

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
My reason, for writing this book, is that I believe a tribute is in order, to recognise all who were part of Headington Hill Hall during the years 1939 to 1958, either directly or indirectly. The contributions these people made have had a profound affect on future generations. Vis-à-vis: My father would be recognised for his significant role in inventing the Oxford Lift. The staff, surgeons, nurses and therapists at St Hugh’s and other affiliated hospitals, be recognised for their dedication and skill was immeasurable. What they started, in the way of treatment, was essential for the eventual well-being of ‘The Boys’. It was ground-breaking in many ways. What was learned from the whole experience has set the standard for rehab in the following decades. This is Dawn’s fourth non-fiction book. The first two were set in England, and the third was primarily set in the United States.
