Abstract

UCL’s Grant Museum of Zoology has re-opened in The Thomas Lewis Room in UCL's Rockefeller Building. This book provides fascinating historical notes about the new room, the building, and the wider university and medical school environment. The aim is to answer a range of basic historical questions that visitors might have about the space, some of the architectural details, and the building's history. This book contributes to the history of science and medicine at University College London (UCL) and University College Hospital (UCH). An appendix identifies the “twelve apostles” of the old Medical School Library, once honoured by sculptures displayed along the room’s balcony. Who were they? Why were they honoured so? This is available as a separate fact sheet.
