Mabel FitzGerald: the archive of a physiologist


  • University of Oxford

Project summary

This project is to create access to the archive of physiologist Mabel FitzGerald (1872-1973). She was a remarkable woman who, despite studying at Oxford University and being recognised for her contribution to research during her lifetime, didn’t receive a degree until her 100th birthday. The project will conserve her papers, produce a detailed catalogue of their contents and promote the collection to potential users through blog postings, a video and a seminar. The archive will become fully accessible for the first time since its deposit at the library in 1973.
