“Remembering Radcliffe: 300 years of science and philanthropy”

The Bodleian Libraries’ winter 2014 exhibition celebrated the life and legacy of John Radcliffe, a physician and philanthropist who left a lasting mark on the University and city of Oxford.

The exhibition considered his legacy to Oxford, and the three buildings in the city which bear his name: the Radcliffe Infirmary, the Radcliffe Observatory, and the Radcliffe Camera: the first circular library in Britain, and one of the country’s most distinctive and recognisable buildings. The exhibition also looked at Radcliffe’s ongoing legacy in the work of the Radcliffe Trust as it marked the 300th anniversary of his death.

The exhibition ran from 28th November 2014 to 20th March 2015.
