JAMES AND JOYCE
Born and brought up in Rutherglen, Scotland, he was a Psychiatric Social Worker and Psychoanalyst based at the Tavistock Clinic and Institute, London from 1948 until 1976.
'(He) was a remarkable person who achieved great things. His sensitive observations and brilliant filming made history, and the courage with which he disseminated - often in the face of ignorant and prejudiced criticism - what were then very unpopular findings, was legendary. He will always be remembered as the man who revolutionised children's hospitals, though he accomplished much else besides. I am personally deeply grateful for all that he did.' John Bowlby.
