    Beschreibung: December to January 1953. Romania and the USSR Russia. Russian locations: Moscow Leningrad Peterhof Tsarskoe-Selo Gatchina Pavlovsk Kharkov Kiev, 1952. Biographical details regarding Humphreys are hard to come by. He features in two Times reports of the indisposition of the pianist Cyril Smith in Moscow in 1956 (8 May and 9 June). On his award of the OBE in the 1958 New Years Honours List he was described as 'lately First Secretary and Medical Officer at Her Majesty's Embassy in Moscow'. On his retirement in 1987 he was described as 'Col. T. V. Humphreys, O.B.E., M.B., B.Ch., B.A.O. (530578) late R.A.M.C.' Primarily a travelogue by a 'convinced monarchist', 'enthusiastic art collector ' and lover of the arts and fine wines (Humphreys has 'a liking for the traditional which strangely enough was never resented in the Soviet Union'), with an emphasis on the many 'lonely, empty Palaces' he visits in Romania and Russia, the account also gives an interesting insight into medical practices behind the Iron Curtain, with comparisons of the state of medicine in the West and at the Western diplomatic missions, and in the Russia and Romania he encounters through meetings with medical men and on visits to hospitals, a whole chapter being devoted to 'Soviet methods of medicine'. 253pp, 4to. In two parts, paginated 1-129 and 1-123, with one duplicate pagination. The complete original typescript, with autograph emendations, divided into 27 chapters (first part, chapters 1-15; second part, duplicate chapter 15-26), and amounting to around 70,000 words. Each page on a separate punch-holed leaf, the entire typescript bound into a red plastic binder. In fair condition, on aged and worn paper, with the first few leaves with tape staining and light rust staining from paper clips and the metal of the worn binder. At the head of the first page Humphreys has given his name and address as 'Major TV Humphreys, OBE, RAMC | Medical Centre | Lisanelly Barracks OMAGH', correcting this to 'Officer Commanding | Medical Reception Station | SAIGHTON CAMP, CHESTER.' A well-written and informed account by a cultured Ulsterman of his five years of service as medical officer in the Bucharest and Moscow British embassies during the cold war. A decade after his tour of duty Humphreys published a ten-page account of the medical aspects of his five years behind the Iron Curtain, in a paper titled 'Medicine and Surgery in Eastern Europe | Some Observations of a Medical Officer and Temporary Diplomat 1952-1957' (Journal of the Royal Army Medical Corps, 1 January 1966). In that paper he remarks: 'So far as I know I am the only doctor to have been entrusted by the Foreign Office with two consecutive diplomatic medical posts beyond the "Iron Curtain", and to have spent as long as five years on these duties. For obvious reasons of policy these posts art temporary and are usually restricted to a period of one or two years.' In describing Romania Humphreys discusses his organisation of the 'Legation medical services'; how the 'ice seemed really broken' by 'a very obscure case' of 'an atypical infective mononucleosis'; the hospitals at Bucharest; and his view of 'Roumanian medicine' ('often more influenced by Soviet doctrines incomprehensible to Western-trained medical minds'). With regard to his Russian experiences he devotes the ten pages of Chapter XXIV to 'Soviet methods in Medicine', beginning with a description of his own work, which consists of 'the medical care of our own Embassy staff and families and on behalf of H.M. Government, those of other Western diplomatic missions as required'. The number of Western missions that used his services and those of the American Embassy doctor was 'considerable', and Humphreys' time 'was constantly occupied with the normal routine of general medical practice, differing from similar work at home only inasmuch as the practice was conducted in several languages, mostly French when English was not used. As in Roumania, a knowledge of the national background of the patients was of immense value in treating their ailments'. As the British Embassy surgery contained no more than 'a supply of drugs and elementary appliances', use was made of the Russian Policlinic; for laboratory and X-ray services and for cases requiring urgent major surgical treatment'. He discusses the arrangements at the Policlinic, and its 'monoglot' doctors ('the basic ideas of Russian medical practice are quite different from those obtaining in Great Britain and America. In Russia each doctor claims to be some kind of specialist and the general practitioner concept is completely unknown here.') Compared with Roumania, he finds 'the sense of frustration often overpowering [.] Approach to the specialist was equally difficult in Roumania but once this had been achieved things were immeasurably easier. Unheard of difficulties were put in the way of my attending as an observer at emergency major operations on my patients [.] The attitude, unthinkable in the West, was "You are not a gynaecologist", (or throat specialist, or whatever the condition requiring treatment) "therefore attendance at the operation cannot be of any interest to you". He compares the Russian medical degrees with those of the Queen's University, where he studied, and explains how how his comment '"Well, I do have a degree in Surgery, you know" [.] worked with gynaecological cases but was not accepted for matters affecting Eyes, Ears, Noses or Throats! Requests for bacteriological examinations of throat swabs were met on occasion with the most provokingly banal statements delivered with an air of profound wisdom, such as "There are microbes in all throats; it is not necessary to do cultures to find this out"'. He describes the treatment of diplomatic cases at the Foreigners' Wing of the Botkin Hospital, and explains how 'official visits by distinguished British doctors' allowed him to visit 'the really interesting units in the specialist hospitals', and gave 'an opportunity to meet officals of the Ministry of Health, good linguists and intelligent and well educated people, who arranged the itineraries of the visit.
