Join us for an evening of conversation with Rosemary Goring talking to Professor Sir Kenneth Calman looking back at his remarkable life and career.

Thursday 7 November, 5.30pm

When first Scotland and then England wanted to give someone the job of looking after the nation’s health, there was just one man for the job. When the Scottish Parliament needed someone to examine expanding its powers, it was the same story. When Glasgow University, the National Library of Scotland, the National Trust for Scotland, the Boys’ Brigade, the World Health Organisation, British Medical Association, Durham University and many others wanted a chancellor, vice-chancellor, chairman or a president, the same name topped the list Sir Kenneth Calman. Join us tonight for an in conversation event with this man.
