Gems from the Collections - nutrition

Staff and students are invited to have a closer look at the wonderful historical collections that are held at the School. On Wednesday 10th November, between 12 and 2pm in the e-library on the ground floor of the South Courtyard, the Library & Archives Service is holding a 'Gems from the Collections - nutrition' session where staff will be available to show you some of the rare and unique documents and books that we hold relating to nutrition. Material on show will include:

· A range of educational leaflets, pamphlets and posters that have been used to promote healthy eating across the world from the 1930s to 1970s
· Original papers and published articles of former Department of Human Nutrition staff, including Professor Benjamin Platt, Erica Wheeler and Mary Griffiths
· Records from our unique collection of material from Stanley Civilian Internment Camp, Hong Kong, which were created and collected by Dr Dean Smith during his role as Camp nutrition officer, 1942-1945
· Photographs, maps and diaries from nutrition surveys undertaken in Nyasaland, 1938-1943 and The Gambia, 1946-1950

There is no need to make an appointment, just drop in and see us in the e-library and find out more about the School's historical collections.
