Immediate source of acquisition:

The minute book of this Society was deposited by them in the Wellcome Library, where it originally formed part of the collection of Western Manuscripts, and was transferred to the Contemporary Medical Archives Centre (both departments later formed part of the department of Archives and Manuscripts) in October 1980. The Jubilee History was donated by the Society in 1987. Subsidiary material was deposited in 1996; this has yet to be added to the catalogue.
