Elizabeth Adelaide Baker

Description

Photograph courtesy of the family of Dr Baker.

Pictured here is a portrait that represents the life and work of Elizabeth Adelaide Baker as part of the College's "Admitting Women" exhibition.

Elizabeth Adelaide Baker was the first woman to apply for fellowship of the College in 1897. Although she was already a licentiate of the College through the Triple Qualification, her application for fellowship was refused on the grounds of a minor technicality within medical legislation. The College concluded that women were “not eligible among the brethren” of Fellows. While refused, Baker’s attempt at obtaining fellowship represented a bold push for gender equality in medicine.
Baker practiced medicine in many locations, including Greenhill House in Orkney and Lady Gomm Memorial Mission House and Accident Hospital in Rotherhithe.

Pictured here is a portrait that represents the life and work of Anne Louise McIlroy as part of the College's "Admitting Women" exhibition.

Dr Anne Louise Mcllroy applied to become a Fellow of the College in 1910. She studied medicine at the University of Glasgow, and was the first woman to receive the MD with a commendation. In her application for fellowship, she stated that it was “necessary for the holding of teaching posts.” Her application although refused led to the motion being passed in 1911 allowing women to be accepted as Fellows. Despite battling gender inequality, McIlroy was eventually awarded an OBE and then DBE for her services to midwifery.

She worked as a surgeon with the Scottish Women’s Hospital during the First World War. McIlroy was the first woman professor of Obstetrics and Gynaecology at London University and was a founding Fellow of the Royal College of Obstetrics and Gynaecologists.

Jamini Sen

Description

Image from the archives of the Centre for Studies in Social Sciences, Calcutta. Courtesy: Sevati Mitra.

Pictured here is a portrait that represents the life and work of Jamini Sen as part of the College's "Admitting Women" exhibition.

Jamini Sen was admitted as the first female Fellow of the College in 1912, passing the fellowship examination as a surgeon. She was unable to hold office in the College, meaning that her privileges as a female Fellow were restricted compared to those of her male counterparts. It would be 11 years before another woman was admitted as a Fellow (Margaret Hogg Grant in 1923).

Sen studied at Calcutta Medical College, obtaining a medical license in 1897. She practiced in Nepal from 1899 until 1909, before receiving a scholarship from the Dufferin Foundation in 1911. This allowed her to travel widely to expand her skills as a surgeon, obtaining a further medical license in Dublin. Her desire to learn and advance medical education is reflected in her words, "I have a lot of responsibilities towards my sisters in my country."

Portrait of Kirsty Follett

Description

Pictured here is a portrait of Kirsty Follett, a nurse who has worked in the Greater Glasgow and Clyde region of the NHS for over 30 years. This portrait was captured after a 12 hour shift during the Covid pandemic, showing the effect these conditions had on the staff - mentally and physically draining, skin raw and marked from masks held tight, often exacerbated with sweat, tears and genuine concern for those they were treating.

About the experience, Kirsty said:

"I worked between the intubation team and ICU. The adaptability was commendable that the staff put into ICU. 100% working out with their comfort zone.However the support from colleagues in the same position helped. It was stressful, as never having to deal with the likes we have never seen before.Our patients were so critically ill. The acute sense of upset for families not being there with their loved ones at their greatest time of need will be something that will live with me for a long time."

The portrait was done by Pearl Kinnear, a Glasgow-based artist.

Letter from William Clark to Archibald Young

Description

Letter from William Clark of Uddingston to Professor Archibald Young expressing thanks for his treatment at hospital.

“4 Clydeford Drive, Uddingston, 18/7/39.

Dear Professor Young,

When I read in this morning’s newspaper a remark you made at yesterday’s presentation of your portrait in oils- “One is more sure of today- one can be less sure of tomorrow.” I decided to write to you at once.

How can I find words for the adequate expression of my thanks for the great kindnesses you have shown me? We are told that out of the fullness of the heart the mouth speaketh. I have sometimes doubted the literal accuracy of that statement and never more than today. Blame the poverty of my vocabulary but whatever the cause it is certainly not any deficiency in my keen and abiding feeling of gratitude to you. I was sorry that I did not see you again before I left the hospital, but most unfortunately was asked to released duly as Mr Orr would explain.

I have been keeping fairly well, but my feet have been troubling me. Perhaps I was too soon at work and didn’t get an opportunity to rest them enough.

Let me say that while in hospital, I was most contented and received kindness from everyone.

My debt to the hospital I have not yet paid. I have been wondering if there is anything I could give to Ward 19 in your name. I noted that the Ward had no dinner-waggon.
I must give something. If that isn’t suitable, then money shall be sent in honour of one who has been to me a great friend.

I am hoping to visit the hospital on Saturday and then may find out what would be the most acceptable present for the Ward, Prof. Young’s Ward.

I sincerely pray that your health will greatly improve and that you will be spared to us for many years.

I trust that this note has made clear to you the warmth of my deepest gratitude.

Yours sincerely,

William Clark”

Dear Sir,
I was a patient under you in Ward 15 for 6 weeks in the spring of this year, and underwent an operation for the removal of the little toe on my right foot, owing to long standing skin disease.
When able to go home, you on two occasions asked me to come back, and let you see me in about six months’ time. So if you let me know any day that would suit you either this week or next. I would be very pleased to come up.
I may say that the foot healed up beautifully, and I have been back at my work since the end of June, and have enjoyed many good long walks without any ill effects. And I feel I cannot express how grateful I am, for all the benefit I have got while under your care.

Yours sincerely,

James Stevenson

P.S. I left the hospital on the 2nd of May."

My Dear Sir,
I assure you it is no easy matter to express how truly grateful I am to you for saving my life, after having been so dangerously shot. I have every reason to be proud that I was placed under your able hand- under the care of a Surgeon whose skillful and most successful operations have gained for him a universal reputation. I am confident that I would not have been so promptly and successfully operated upon by any other Surgeon- which makes me all the more thankful. I am also glad to state that the the very careful way which I was nursed and the kind way which I was treated by your Nurses (in my opinion) contributed largely towards my speedy recovery. My friends and all who know me are highly pleased to see me discharged by you in such a satisfactory condition. I again thank you from my heart, and also your subordinates for their very kind attention. I trust you will accept of the enclosed small gift as a token of my appreciation of your most valuable services to me.

This letter describes the feelings of friends on Allan's departure for China.

"13 Bath Street, March 5 1872.

James W. Allan.

My dear Friend,
I have received with much pleasure the news, both of the telegram and the letter; each in this season; announcing your safe arrival at the proximal extremity of your China journey. And I will weary till I have a telegram from Liverpool intimating your safe return.
I cannot describe to you, the feeling of that walk home on Sunday night. There seemed to be a wonderful lack of words, and a silent confusion pervaded all of us, as we tottered slowly down the streets, until, last of all, the silence began to be quite unbearable, and each tried to speak: but, the broken, semi-spasmodic sentences, which were uttered, only showed, too plainly, that our minds were on a very different subject from our tongues. Sutherland, remained quietly on the sofa, for a long time, and at last gave vent to a queer expression, emanating from the depths of the trachea, then a faint smile, lit for a moment his swarthy face, but only to make the dull eyes, still more dull and dismal, as if the lower part of his face was masking the upper: and shifting himself uneasily on the sofa he said “Hell man! Jamie is really away to China.” “It’s queer isn’t it.” And after a short interval, all of us, by one desire, wanted to separate. We wanted to be alone. So Archie and I drawing closer to each other than usual & holding each others arms firmer than our want, passed slowly down to the bridge, and for a little time looked sadly into the dark flowing river, which reflected the flickering lights and with promises to meet soon, grasped hands and departed; and the sorrow in Archie’s eye I still see: calm and deep.
There is a sort of dread hanging over me, which I hope will soon vanish. We may never meet again, here. You or I may leave this earth ere from ____, one sent into the past: but if it should be, we will know: whoever goes, that it will only be to participate the sooner in the mysteries of the eternal. One thing will never be shaken [:] our love for each other.

May God be with us.

College Crest Animation

Description

Transcript

"The current coat of arms was approved by College council in 1862. In the top left and bottom right quarters we can see the symbols for the physicians and surgeons,  the poppy and the lancet, with the staff of Asclepius, a Greek god of healing and medicine, in the centre. 

In the top right quarter we have the royal arms of Scotland, included to show the connections to the royal foundation of the College by King James VI.  

In the bottom left quarter is the shield of arms of the city of Glasgow,  included to show the importance of the local position of the College in the community. Above the central shield of the crest is a lamp in front of an open book, representing enlightenment and continued learning.

There are two goddesses on the crest, chosen to represent the scientific and medical and surgical characteristics of the College. On the right is Hygeia, the Greek goddess of health. And on the left, Minerva, the Roman goddess of science and art. 

Then we have the College motto. At the top, "Conjurat Amice", which translates to "together in friendship". This represents the physicians and surgeons working together.  At the bottom, "Non vivere sed valere vita",  which loosely translates to "not just to live life but to have a healthy life".

Joseph Lister 1868 Lecture on Antisepsis

Description

Pictured here is the minute book of the Glasgow Medico-Chirurgical Society. In this meeting, Joseph Lister presented his method of dressing wounds with carbolic acid, which was key to his work in antisepsis. This lecture took place in the Faculty Hall, now the College's Princess Alexandera room.

"An extra meeting of the Society was held this evening, and the President occupied the chair.

The minutes of last meeting were read and approved.
Mr Lister gave a lengthened exposition of the atmospheric germ theory of putrefaction, and illustrated it by the exhibition of M. Pasteur’s experiment with flasks containing urine.

He next directed attention to the employment of Carbolic acid for the destruction of the germs presumed to exist in the air, and which Mr Lister supposed to be the exciting cause of putrefaction in wounds; and for the details of a case in which a young man sustained an incised wound of left side of thorax, with penetration through the diaphragm and protrusion of omentum through the wound externally.

The protruding portion of omentum was cut off; and although the left pleural cavity was so distended with air and haemorrhage as to cause displacement of the heart to the right side of the chest, the young man made a perfect recovery under the Carbolic acid dressings.
Mr L then described the effects of a ligature applied on the antiseptic system to the carotid of a horse, and showed the portion of the artery, and the superjacent skin, as well as the ligature, all of which had been removed from the horse, which had died from some disease unconnected with the operation, 13 days after.
He also narrated a case of ligature of the external iliac artery by the same method, and the history of a case of necrosis of the tibia, in which some of the dead bone had come away, but was presumed to have been absorbed.

The mode of dressing wounds with Carbolic acid was next described; the part of Carbolic acid in 20 of water being recommended for an internal application; and for external dressing, after experimenting with a number of different substances, Mr Lister had arrived at the conclusion that emplastrum plumbi with a fourth of its weight of bees wax and impregnated with Carbolic acid is the most suitable. The strength of the dressing ought however in all cases to be regulated by the nature of the wound.

A discussion following, was, chiefly owing to the late hour, confined principally to the cause of putrefaction in wounds, and the theory which had been advanced by Mr Lister to account for the antiseptic properties of the Carbolic acid."

The Case of James Greenlees

Description

In 1867, Joseph Lister published a series of articles in The Lancet that were to be the first examples of antisepsis in action. Each of the cases occurred during his time working at the Glasgow Royal Infirmary. His first case was a young boy by the name of James Greenlees, who had an open fracture of his leg. Lister set the fracture and dressed the wound in carbolic acid to prevent infection. James made a full recovery. This was the birth of antisepsis.

Cast of the Cranium of Robert Burns

Description

In 1834 the body of Scotland’s national bard, Robert Burns, was exhumed from his grave in Dumfries. The exhumation was supervised by local surgeon Archibald Blacklock, who had an interest in phrenology. A plaster cast was taken of the skull, and Blacklock noted that “nothing could exceed the high state of preservation in which we found the bones of the cranium, or offer a fairer opportunity of supplying what has so long been desiderated by Phrenologists - a correct model of our immortal Poet’s head”. George Combe, a leading phrenologist, examined the cast and published his analysis in Edinburgh in 1834.

Three casts were made during the 1834 exhumation. This cast is believed to be a copy produced later in the 19th century. It was in the possession of Murdoch Cameron, Professor of Midwifery at the University of Glasgow. Cameron then gave the cast to John Cleland, Professor of Anatomy, whose collection is housed in the University’s Museum of Anatomy.

This item is on loan from The Hunterian, University of Glasgow.
