Apr 7th: MEDICINE – Mike Cleary

Mike’s first display of commemorative issue sheets, covered medicines and the people who discovered the various unguents and medicines from way back, such as Louis Pasteur(1822 to 1895), smallpox cures, tuberculosis in animals and many more.

Mike’s second 72 sheet display continued the theme, such as stamps showing the old “hammer and chisel” operations, medicines “to release Demons”, up to heart transplants, limb and other body parts replacements, cure for poliomyelitis, and a great many more issues from a great many countries. Mike’s displays were very well presented and written up.

Vice President Rab called on Mike Turnbull to give the vote of thanks, which he did admirably, to which the Members reciprocated.
