Summary

Reginald Money was one of Australia's first specialist neurosurgeons. A study tour to the United States and the United Kingdom in the early 1930s, during which he worked with leading neurosurgeons, inspired him to specialise in this new field. For 30 years from 1937 he played a central role at the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, Sydney, as Honorary Neurosurgeon and later on the Hospital's Board of management. At the Hospital he was instrumental in establishing Australia's first fully equipped department of neurosurgery in 1938. Money was a founding member of the Society of Australasian Neurosurgical Surgeons in 1940 and was twice President of the Neurosurgical Society of Australia.
