‘In 1907, Henry Percival Pickerill (1879-1956) became the founding director of the new Otago University Dental School, 18 months after completing his medical and dental studies at the University of Birmingham. His work on facial and jaw reconstructions at Sidcup Hospital in England during WWI established him as one of the pioneers of plastic surgery. He later went on to become Australasia’s first plastic surgeon, known for his work on harelip and cleft palate surgery. In 1924, Pickerill published Facial Surgery, much of which was based on his time at Sidcup, as surgeon in charge of the New Zealand section of Queen Mary’s Hospital. It is a valuable record of the early days of post-traumatic facial reconstructive surgery.’ Item chosen by Trish Leishman, Subject Librarian, Health Sciences, University of Otago
