Naylor Archive Uncovers Historic Document

Naylor Archive Uncovers Historic Document
21/01/2020

A recent find in the Cawthorne archives of Naylor Drainage is now proudly residing in a museum.

A Naylor employee with an interest in history came across a St John’s Ambulance document from the 1980s in the Naylor archives; the document carried early guidance for first aiders relating to the AIDS virus. An archives hub search only came up with one similar item, from a different organisation from 1985.

Realising the potential significance of the document, the Order of St John Museum in London was contacted and the Museum curator was delighted to accept the donation of the document into their collection, commenting: “Many thanks to Naylor for donating this historical document to our Museum. This leaflet includes information around transmission which was thought to be true at the time but our advice to first aiders remains the same.”
