Classification CH classification MEDICINE Medicine model
Name or Title Medical Model, Articulated Hip & Booklet 1973
Production Date Circa 1973
History and Use

This booklet was provided along with a model of an articulated hip, part of a set provided by a medical supplier. Models such as this are used as advertising by medical suppliers and by medical practitioners to allow explanations of medical conditions and treatments in patient consultation.
The model came from the consulting room of Sir Alexander Murphy (1892-1976), a Physician and Cardiologist who practiced from rooms on Wickham Terrace, Brisbane from the 1920s to the 1970s. Born in Brisbane in 1892, he enlisted in the Australian Army Medical Corps in World War 1, where he served on the Western Front, being awarded a Military Cross. On his return after the war he completed his residency at Royal Prince Alfred Hospital in Sydney before returning to Brisbane in 1920 where he remained for the rest of his career. Sir Alexander Murphy worked as a consultant physician at the Military Hospital in Greenslopes in World War II, was the foundation Professor of Medicine at the University of Queensland's Medical School where he lectured, and was a foundation member and president of the Royal Australasian College of Physicians. Continuing to work as a cardiologist and physician throughout his distinguished career, Sir Alexander Murphy was knighted in 1954 for his contribution to medicine.
