Histology Slides

Description

Card box containing layers of glass histology slides.

These slides belonged to Dr Alice Margaret Insh, who
worked at Shieldhall Fever Hospital and was a Senior Medical Officer in Lanarkshire in the mid-20th century. They were probably used for teaching, and contain a variety of samples, including cancer, bacteria, and general histology, taken from both animals and humans.

Insh graduated MBChB from the University of Glasgow in 1938 and then gained her diploma in Public Health from the University in 1940.

She served as the Senior Medical Officer in Lanarkshire and the Resident Physician of Shieldhall Fever Hospital in Glasgow.
