Wellcome’s Collectors

22 January, 2015 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Free

Pharmacist, philanthropist and Fellow of the Royal Society, Sir Henry Wellcome is now widely recognised as one of the most acquisitive of collectors during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. But Wellcome’s collection of historical objects was not the work of one man acting alone. This talk will aim to bring forth from the shadows of his store rooms the men and women who bid, bought, and collected in Wellcome’s name.

Speaker: Ross MacFarlane, Research Engagement Officer, Wellcome Library

This event is free but is ticketed. Tickets will be available closer to the time directly from the Wellcome Collection.
