Kenneth Pridie Lectures

Kenneth Pridie, Lecturer in Orthopaedic Surgery at the University of Bristol and Senior Orthopaedic Surgeon at Bristol Royal Hospital and Winford Orthopaedic Hospital, died suddenly on May 4th 1963, at the age of fifty-seven years while reading a paper to the South-West Orthopaedic Club meeting at Exeter.

He had had to reduce his activities since the first evidence of cardiac insufficiency in 1962. He appeared to be doing well until shortly before his death when his friends were alarmed by news of heart failure, but he insisted on giving his paper on anterior fusion of the cervical spine. The Memorial Lecture is given in his memory.

The first Kenneth Pridie Memorial Lecture was given by Mr A. L. Eyre-Brook on the 8th April 1965.
