TitleDr Clifford Shaw, retired [former Medical Officer of Health], Sheffield
AdminHistoryDr Clifford H. Shaw was born in Bolton, Lancashire in 1919. He studied medicine at St Bartholomew's Hospital, London and qualified in 1942. After serving in the R.A.M.C. he chose a career in public health. His first job involved working in the child health services in Rotherham from 1947-1949. After an appointment as lecturer at the London School of Hygiene he moved to Ipswich and Nottinghamshire, before coming to Sheffield in 1956. In 1965 he was promoted to Medical Officer of Health on the retirement of Dr Llywelyn Roberts, with whom he had collaborated in preparing a new edition of 'A Synopsis of Hygiene'. The position of Medical Officer of Health lapsed when the National Health Service was reorganised in 1974 but he remained in medical administration. From an early age he had been an inveterate flimgoer and is interested in the theatre and foreign travel. Since his retirement he has been compiling a history of Sheffield cinemas and has also contributed a chapter on 'Aspects of Public Health' in 'The History of the City of Sheffield 1843-1993'.
