Medical Collections at the University of Glasgow: History, Description and Mystery
Some aspects of the history of medicine in Glasgow will be outlined to provide a setting for the assembly of anatomy/pathology collections at the University of Glasgow. As medical teaching at the University of Glasgow accelerated in the mid-18th century, the time period covered will be approximately 1750 – present day. Particular focus is given to the life and foundational collections of William Hunter (1718 – 1783), the Scottish anatomist, physician and man-midwife, with some reference to specimens that illustrate acquisition routes or preparation techniques. An intriguing ‘mystery’ collection of dry vascular dissection specimens, of uncertain provenance and under-known production will be described and new information offering clues to their origin and preparation discussed.
