A Higher Purpose: Newcastle University at War – Exhibition Now Online

This exhibition, which reflects largely on the university buildings being requisitioned and used as the 1st Northern General Hospital during the First World War, is now available to view online here. It features a range of fascinating archival material, including photographs of the wards, operation books from a surgeon operating in the Hatton Gallery throughout the period, student admissions registers and magazines relating to the fallen, plans of the buildings, and the Rudyard Kipling letter to the Secretary of State for War.
