Carbolic, Casebook and Controversy

The second of 3 luchtime lectures celebrating the life of Joseph Lister in the centenary of his death.

Joseph Lister is famed for his introduction of antisepsis in surgery using carbolic acid. Using original manuscript material and paintings to be seen in the College, this illustrated lecture will describe how his epoch-making discovery was quickly adopted by country surgeons but either ignored or denied by London surgeons including Presidents of this College. Speaker Sir Barry Jackson will conclude this lecture with a surprise!
