Birthday Card Gallery

Every year since their 16th birthday, study members have received a birthday card from the research team. For many study members ours is the first card to drop through the letter box. We have assembled the birthday cards we hold in our archive below.


If you are interested to learn more about the NSHD birthday cards, they are the subject of their own journal paper: From cohort to community: The emotional work of birthday cards in the Medical Research Council National Survey of Health and Development, 1946–2018
