The Suffolk Medical Biographies cover men and women practising medicine in its various forms in Suffolk from the eleventh century until 1900. To qualify for an entry, the person should have practiced (or at least have been apprenticed) in Suffolk during that period.
Dr David van Zwanenberg (1922-1991) started researching his biographies in the early 1970s, but unfortunately he died before he could finish editing the material. The completed biographies, together with van Zwanenberg's working notes and indices, were kindly donated to Suffolk Record Office's local studies library collection at Ipswich by his widow, Aldyth van Zwanenberg.
