Thomas Ferguson Rodger (1907-1978) was the first Professor of Psychological Medicine at the University of Glasgow. He was appointed in 1949 and held the Chair until his retirement in 1973. His department was originally based at the Southern General Hospital, and Rodger was instrumental in establishing that hospital's reputation as a pioneer in combining Psychological Medicine and Neurological Sciences.
An acknowledged leader in his field, Rodger was a consultant psychiatrist to the Southern General and the Glasgow Western Infirmary; Honorary Consulting Psychiatrist to the Army in Scotland; Vice-President of the Royal College of Psychiatry, and he served on Government and World Health Organisation committees. He was appointed CBE in 1967 and an Honorary Fellow of the Royal College of Psychiatry in 1972.
His collection of papers contain patient case notes; lectures and journal articles by Ferguson Rodger (some in draft form) and others; conference papers (including papers given by Ferguson Rodger); committee papers; and Government circulars.
