Items of Interest


McGill Library Events

Exhibit Vernissage | Reading Abbott
Thursday, May 16, 2024, 4:30 to 6:00 p.m.


In person: Osler Library of the History of Medicine, 3655 promenade Sir William Osler, 3rd floor, Montreal, QC, H3G1Y6

Join us on May 16 as we explore what Maude Abbott loved to read. This exhibition, curated by Professor Annmarie Adams, explores both what she read and ways we can read her life story. While many publications on the famous doctor have focused on the barriers she faced in a male-dominated profession, this exhibition places Abbott among her favourite authors, texts, and locations.
