Name Rogers, Sir Leonard (1868-1962)
Description

Sir Leonard Rogers made many significant contributions in the field of tropical medicine: among the diseases for which he made revolutionary advances in treatment were cholera, amoebic dysentery and abscess of the liver, and leprosy. He also did important work on Kala-azar, the differentiation of tropical fevers, snake-venoms, the treatment of tuberculosis, and the animal diseases of rinderpest and surra. He was instrumental in bringing about the foundation of the Calcutta School of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene, and was a founder member of the British Empire Leprosy Relief Association. He also played a significant part as a propagandist for the Research Defence Society. He made important studies in epidemiology, in particular the relationship between climate and disease, with specific reference to India. He received numerous honours and distinctions. His publications were very many and diverse (see E/1).

Considerable arrangement of the papers had already taken place and it was clear that after Rogers's retirement from service in India he had given much attention to the preservation of the record of his work, by the preparation of summary notes of the contents of his diaries and by the editing of his diaries to make them more legible and bring out the events of significance and by the arrangement of correspondence. Most of the correspondence and notes deposited by Rogers with the Royal Society of Tropical Medicine had been arranged into bundles by subject, with introductory notes and lists of contents (and in some cases attached indexes). Most letters also include a brief note added by Rogers giving the correspondent's name and the main subject. This arrangement has been retained but an index to correspondents has been prepared . Besides the subject groups of papers there is a small group of letters to and from individuals which seem to have been principally of personal interest to Rogers.

Although Rogers's own arrangement of the papers has been retained as far as possible, since they were deposited originally over a period of time it has not been possible to be completely consistent in the allocation of materials to particular sections of the list; for example some of the items in A.55 complement material to be found in Section C.
