Celebrating Joseph Lister’s Birthday

Written by on April 7, 2014

Saturday the 5th April was the 187th anniversary of the birth of Joseph Lister, pioneer of antiseptic surgery. We were tweeting throughout the day to share Lister-related items from our archive and museum collections. You can have a look through the day’s activity below if you missed it first time round. You can see all of this on Storify too at http://rcp.sg/listertweets

The College’s heritage collections – including thousands of medical and surgical instruments, rare books, archives, and pictures – span over 6 centuries and are an excellent resource for exploring the history of medicine and the history of the city of Glasgow. Many items from the collections have been digitised and are available to view here. Our digitisation work is ongoing, and we add new items to the site regularly, so keep checking back to discover more.
