Are you in London on 23 May? The British Society for the History of Pharmacy and the Royal Pharmaceutical Society are having their next joint lecture that evening, so if you’re around, check it out!
The details are as follows:
Date: Monday 23 May 2016, 5:30pm
Event: British Society for the History of Pharmacy lecture
Title: Henry Wellcome, Pharmacist
Speaker: Ross MacFarlane, Research Engagement Officer, Wellcome Library
Overview: Arguably more recognised now for his collecting activities and his philanthropic interests, Henry Wellcome was first and foremost a pharmacist.  This talk will aim to look at Wellcome’s life through the lens of his business pharmacy career, yet show that untangling the differing strands of his life can be a complicated process.  Drawing upon a range of primary material, Ross will seek to illustrate the development of his career and draw out some little-know details of his business life.
No admission charge, all welcome.  Refreshments from 5pm.
