Administrative / Biographical History

The  Dumbarton Public Eye Dispensary was established in  1892  by the accident benefit societies of the engineering and shipbuilding works in Dumbarton. It was funded by voluntary subscription with the bulk of its income coming from the employers and employees of the town's workplaces. Latterly the Dispensary was based in the Dumbarton Cottage Hospital. In  1948  both the Dispensary and the Hospital were transferred to the National Health Service under the Dunbartonshire Hospitals Board of Management.
