Cover star!

We are delighted to be the cover feature of this month’s issue of the Scottish Council on Archives‘ Broadsheet newsletter! The rather serious looking gentleman in the picture is zoologist James Cossar Ewart (1851-1933), and his striped companion was one of the animals Ewart used for cross-breeding around the time of his famous Penycuik Experiments (1899). Ewart’s papers will be catalogued later on in the project – in the meantime, keep your eyes peeled for more of our project in print…

‘Towards Dolly’ also features on page 2 of the newsletter – download and read it!
