The University of Manchester Library holds the Archive of the Pathological Society of Manchester (PSM ), which is a fairly complete record of the Society's activities from its foundation up until 1950. This includes copies of the Society's laws, an apparently complete set of annual reports, complete sets of minutes of the committee and of meetings of the Society, the published Transactions of the Society, published addresses and papers delivered to the Society, and a small seemingly incomplete collection of membership records.
