The Metamorphosis of Patrick Geddes

Work continues on re-cataloguing the Geddes family photographs.  Working in such close proximity with these photographic collections has provided a rare opportunity to follow intimately the changing face of Patrick Geddes throughout his lifespan. We hope you enjoy the visual journey as much as we did.

Hello!

Welcome to the first blog post from the ‘Evergreen: Patrick Geddes and the Environment in Equilibrium’ project.  The Project Archivist has now begun work on cataloguing the significant Patrick Geddes collections held by Edinburgh University’s Centre for Research Collections and Strathclyde University’s Archives and Special Collections.  Over the coming months we will keep you updated about project progress and will share some of the fascinating collections discoveries and highlights that are sure to be uncovered during the course of the project.

You can read more about the project in the About Us part of this blog.
