Saving Oxford Medicine: archives from the Medical Sciences Division

Saving Oxford Medicine is an 18-month special collections project, running from early 2011, to survey personal papers of current and retired members of Oxford University’s Medical Sciences Division, and to catalogue medical archives already held in the Bodleian Library. The Medical Sciences Division is one of the foremost centres for medical research and teaching in the world. The project aims to record key sources for the recent history of medicine in Oxford. This website will highlight collections as they are discovered and report on interesting items found as cataloguing progresses.

Cataloguing is going to begin with papers relating to Ida Mann (1893-1983), a pioneering opthalmologist, and the papers of Edith Bulbring (1903-1990), a pharmacologist and physiologist.

Full details of the project are available via their webpage and there is also a companion blog for all the latest news on discoveries, acquisitions and cataloguing during the project.
