Explore Your Archive Week coming up

Next week is the launch of Explore Your Archive 2013, and LSHTM archives are taking part.
  • Tuesday 19th November - 12-2pm - South Courtyard 

Drop  by South Coutyard at lunchtime on 19th and learn more about our historic collections, including a chance to see the mosquito box that was used to transport malarial insects from Rome to London for use by Sir Patrick Manson in 1901, Sir Ronald Ross' microscope from 1890s, plus details of his journey to accept the Nobel prize for Medicine in 1902.

You can also see a handrawn map from 1910 showing the distribution of sleeping sickness in East Africa, rare books from the library's collection, and find out details of camping equipment bought by School staff for expeditions in the 1930s, plus much more!

This  session is also open to members of the public: you just need to sign in on the door.
