William Clift (1775-1849) posts his diary online
We are pleased to announce that to commemorate the bicentenary of the Hunterian Museum, the first conservator William Clift is now ‘blogging’ his 1813 diary.
Archivist Louise King will be supporting him by adding pictures and explanations, where necessary, to help 21st century readers.
Read the first post and additional information.
Posts will go up monthly for the rest of the bicentenary year.
We regularly exhibit reproductions of items from the archive collections in the display cases in the Royal College of Surgeons of England Library, and in the display cases on the ground floor by the Council Room and Committee Rooms 2 and 3.
Poetry in the Archive and Library Collections
To celebrate National Poetry Day on 3 October 2013, we have revisited our collections in search of poems.
We were pleased to find several examples, both good and bad, in our archives and library collections, and hope the display in these cases will surprise and entertain visitors.
The Royal College of Surgeons and Naval Surgery
This display of facsimile material from the archives and the library looks at the College's long connection with the training and examining of surgeons for the British Navy, as well as the treatment of wounded sailors (including Admiral Nelson).
