"A born writer, especially a born story-teller. Dr. Sutherland, who is distinguished in medicine, is an amateur in the sense that he only writes when he has nothing better to do. But when he does, it could hardly be done better." G.K. Chesterton.
I set up this website to celebrate the life and work of Dr Halliday Sutherland and to provide a resource for historians and researchers.
Sutherland is often remembered today for the libel action brought against him by Marie Stopes in 1922. When this is recounted, I repeatedly find that:
Where I find articles that inaccurately depict Sutherland, I contact the author/publisher to let them know. Sometimes I contact them to let them know about the new research. This HGS Watch section provides details of this correspondence. My aim is that when articles concern Halliday Sutherland, they are accurate.
