Dr Blake Marsh and the Blake Marsh Lectures

  • Kenneth Day (a1) and Joze Jancar (a2)
Abstract

At the Council meeting of the Royal Medico-Psychological Association in November 1963 the Treasurer reported that “a handsome legacy of about £20,000 in shares had been made to the association by the late Dr Blake Marsh and arrangements are being made to take over these shares”. The actual amount was in fact a little over £23,500 – a considerable sum by today's standards. Numerous suggestions were made as to how this generous gift might be honoured including naming the Association's Bronze Medal after Blake Marsh but Council finally accepted a recommendation of the Education Committee “to found an annual lecture of a standing equal to the Maudsley Lecture on a subject connected with Mental Deficiency to be known by his (Dr Blake Marsh's) name” and this was ratified at the Annual Meeting in 1965.
