Edward Freeman papers

Dr Edward (Ted) Freeman OAM served with his wife, Dorothy, as a medical missionary under the Presbyterian Board of Missions in the New Hebrides from 1963 - 1970. During this time he worked as a medical superintendent at the Paton Memorial Hospital, often under difficult situations. He established a blood bank, updated anaesthetic procedures, taught family planning and supervised the training of many local and expatriate doctors and nurses while working in the New Hebrides. These slides were taken during his time in Vanuatu. They include scenes of missionary activity, hospital staff and events, and everyday life.
