Dr Simon Chaplin, Head of the Wellcome Library, will be giving a lecture about the surgeon Everard Home at the Hunterian Museum in London on Tuesday 14th May at 13.00.
“Who was the real Everard Home (1756-1832)? Was he a brilliant surgeon and scientist, author of hundreds of papers and books, who secured the legacy of his brother-in-law and mentor John Hunter and who achieved the highest offices of his profession? Or was he a vain and duplicitous charlatan, despised by his peers for his Royal sycophancy and publicly shamed for destroying John Hunter’s manuscripts?”
