In January 1953 ‘Foundation Membership’ was offered to established GPs who satisfied defined criteria. Within six weeks 1655 doctors had joined and Membership continued to rise.
The creation of the Museum Collection was the brainchild of the Foundation Council in 1953 who recognised the importance of collecting and preserving the wide range of instruments and equipment used by GPs during the last two centuries.
The RCGP was founded in 1952, and thus holds limited biographical information about its members. We may be able to confirm membership, or hold an obituary about an early member, but for most ancestors prior to 1952 you will have to seek out sources in other institutions.
