Home » Harry Daly Museum & Richard Bailey Library November 2019 Update

The ASA’s Harry Daly Museum recently received a very nice donation of anaesthetic equipment that belonged to a GP from Cessnock in the 1940s. These items included an early Midget CIG (this was displayed at the recent National Scientific Congress), Haemocytometer, Haemoglobinometer and Oscillotonometer. These are just a few of the new items that will be accessioned into the collection over the coming months while we clear the donation backlog.

The museum exhibits are still being redeveloped and it the audit of the collection is continuing. The Museum is open by appointment, please email bmcmartin@asa.org.au to arrange your visit.

A reminder as well that the ASA archives are a great source of information if you are beginning a research project. With records that date back to the early beginnings of the ASA, the ASA Archivist can help with your inquiry. Please email bmcmartin@asa.org.au
