Seeking sister from the '60s.

Back in the late '60s, I was a very wet-behind-the-ears graduate from the dental school in Cork and on my first house officer job at the Manchester Royal Infirmary.

I knew absolutely nothing about anything, and the Royal Infirmary was more of a large town than any hospital I was familiar with in my undergraduate training. As happens, one of the ward sisters took pity on me and guided me through the worst of the pitfalls that lay in wait for such as I.

Pamela Haig married soon after I met her, and she and her husband moved to New Zealand. I went on to Mexico, spent time at Manchester University, then South Africa, and ended up a professor at University College, San Francisco.

I am now Living in a small town in Western Australia with my family--Joyce, our nine-year-old son Rory, and "Dog", a la Footrot Flats.

But I would Love to catch up with Pare and her family again, if any of your members know her. I can be contacted at fionnbarra@westnet. com.au. Many thanks.

Barry Walsh, Kojonup, Western Australia
