Archive Collections Available to View Online

The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh's Library and Archives have launched a new Digital Collections Website.  Rare manuscripts and photographic collections are now available to view online for the first time ever.

Some of the collections that are available include:

  • Henry Wade and the Scottish Horse Mounted Field Ambulance World War One Photographic Collection
  • Incorporation of Surgeons and Barbers of Edinburgh, 1505-
  • Scottish Women's Hospitals for Foreign Service and World War One Field Hospital

There will be additional collections added in due course.

The new website also comes with a Surgeons Database, this allows genealogists and family historians to see the information we have on their relatives who were Members or Fellows of RCSEd between 1505-1918.
