A group of men in uniform stand outside on the grass in front of a building.

Cliveden was Nancy and Waldorf Astor’s estate in Buckinghamshire, England. The Astors had the hospital built on their tennis courts. It was run by the Canadian Red Cross, and was dismantled at the end of the First World War. Osler served as head physician of the hospital. (Description courtesy of McGill University.)
