6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Author Thomas Morris will discuss some stories from this eponymously titled book which is subtitled ‘A History of the Heart in Eleven Operations.’ He will focus on the contribution of London hospitals in the period between 1800 and 1930 (the pre-open heart era).
There's a fantastic amount Victorian material in these chapters, suitable for this beautiful museum built in the same era, and tales includes the story of a procedure recorded by George William Callender in 1873 - a needle which was removed from a heart after being stuck in it for several days - a needle which is in fact in our collection! (Specimen I.64 - Full report in the Medico-Chirurgical Transactions of 1873) Tweet Thomas @thomasngmorris
As always, the museum's specimens will be on display - particularly the hearts and specimen I.64, above - to make this a truly educational and engaging experience.
