DescriptionCorrespondence sent to Lockhart regarding his application to the Regius Chair of Anatomy in the University of Aberdeen, March - April 1938. Principally from friends, colleagues and mentors, offering or (occasionally) declining to provide testimonials and references in support of his application, the tone of the letters is warm and affectionate, with frequent references to Lockhart's family and occasional passing references to colleagues and their work. See, for example, letter from Alexander Low, Aberdeen, 20 March 1938, in which he describes how he finds Sir James R. Learmonth, 'rather sensitive to criticism ... - even expression of a different view - he cools off and is not 'playing' with you for a time.'
