“1952 when Dr Bruce Paton and Geoff were with us, Miss Kamerzel, & a lot of the students.” Group portrait of medical staff and students in front of the new nurses' home, Dr A C Irvine stands centre back. Bruce Paton [left] and Geoffrey Irvine [right] spent eight months, over the Winter 1951-52, at Chogoria, Geoff returning to Edinburgh to work his pre-registration year. Sister Mary-Jane Kamerzel [centre] was the first American nurse at Chogoria and arrived in July 1950. ❧ The image is from the collection of Dr Archibald Clive Irvine (1893-1974) showing the period from 1947-1961 at the Chogoria mission which was established near Mt Kenya, in 1922, and run by Dr Irvine.
