PhD Theses on the Isle of Man

We lack any number of bibliographic tools and resources for the Island and a listing of both MA dissertations and PhD theses especially is needed. If no publications ever arise from PhDs they are the hardest resource to track down. I intend to use this thread to gather together what I have in my notes or have come across. If you have a ref. please leave it in a reply and I will cut ‘n paste it into place.

The listing here will be by name; I am not going to attempt a subject index as well.
