Labour in the Laboratory: Medical Laboratory Workers in the Maritimes, 1900-50
McGill-Queen's Press - MQUP, 4. mai 2005 - 241 pages
Medical laboratory workers play a crucial role in the health care system but are often hidden from public view. Unlike many previous histories of Canadian health care, Labour in the Laboratory offers an intimate portrait of the women (and a few men) who laboured at the bench. In a detailed analysis of local hospital records, membership records, newspapers, professional health care journals, and other sources, Peter Twohig shows that the history of health care looks different when seen from the perspective of workers other than physicians or nurses.
