Commemorative pamphlet for banquet offered to Lord Lister [Joseph Lister], 1897 (26 May)

In 1897, the pioneering surgeon Joseph Lister was raised to the peerage as Baron Lister of Lyme Regis and a banquet was given in his honour on 26 May that year. Inside this 20-page booklet are the names of all the surgeons and other staff at the three hospitals where Lister worked. The hospitals listed were:

Royal Infirmary Glasgow 1861-1869 (where Lister pioneered his ideas of antisepsis.)

Edinburgh Royal Infirmary 1869-1877

King’s College Hospital, London 1877-1893.

The coats of arms of the hospitals can be seen on the front cover. The booklet was donated to the Wellcome collections by Sir St Clair Thomson (1859-1943), a laryngologist who was present at the banquet.
