‘Sir Robert Sibbald 1641 -1722: A fascinating life in a dangerous time’
Sir Robert Sibbald was a distinguished physician and scientist and a founder fellow and president of the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh. His long life, spanned one of the most difficult periods of Scotland’s history.  Thanks to his rare autobiography we can relive this period in a story that features whales, golf and highwaymen. Iain Milne, Sibbald Librarian and Head of Heritage at the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh will tell this interesting story. He is responsible for one of the world’s great collections of historical medical literature. He has a major interest in the history of Scottish medicine particularly in the 18th and 19th century period and is the author or co-author of a number of publications on this period.
