Bundle: 'Microscopical Section'

Scope and Content

Correspondence mostly between the honorary secretary of the Society and A. H. Young, secretary of the Microscopical Section of the Society relating to the winding-up of the Section's affairs.

/1 Henry Ashby to [C J] Cullingworth 3 February 1880, sends details of membership of the Section; /2-5 deal with the dispute in 1885 over the requirement of MMS that members of the Microscopical Section also be members of the Society. This appears to have caused the break-up of the Section in 1885. The Section was re-founded as the independent Pathological Society of Manchester in the following year.
