Cataloguing the Kinnier Wilson and Ninian Bruce Neurology Collections


  • Royal College of Physicians Edinburgh

Project summary

This project catalogued two personal collections, consisting of 18 box files, which cover a particularly interesting era in neurology. The collection of S A Kinnier Wilson, who gave his name to Wilson’s disease, was much more extensive than previously thought. The collection of Alexander Ninian Bruce, Wilson’s brother-in-law, comprised more than 500 neurology books, as well as works on psychiatry and Murrell’s photographic study of locomotion.
