Telegraph & Argus, Thursday, May 21, 1959:

With a security clamp on information but knowing that the whole world would know the next day, the T&A went ahead and broke the news that two Bradford men had made huge advances in the treatment of breast cancer. There had been stories floating about for some time at the possibility of a remarkable new treatment at the Royal Infirmary, but no official statement had been made as yet. When the full facts were finally revealed, it was no surprise that the Bradford discovery of chemotherapy by surgeon George Whyte-Watson and pathologist Prof Robert Turner was revolutionary and something that would forever change the face of cancer treatment. In 1957, 340 had died from the disease, with 170 of those being between the ages of 45 and 65.
