Who was the real Everard Home (1756-1832)? Was he a brilliant surgeon and scientist, author of hundreds of papers and books, who secured the legacy of his brother-in-law and mentor John Hunter and who achieved the highest offices of his profession? Or was he a vain and duplicitous charlatan, despised by his peers for his Royal sycophancy and publicly shamed for destroying John Hunter’s manuscripts?
Lunchtime lecture tickets: £4. Lectures last approximately 45 minutes with time for questions.
Free entry plus guest to RCS fellows and members, free entry to RCS affiliates, medical students and Hunterian Society members (please call to reserve places). Free place for companions accompanying disabled visitors.
