Microscope Slides Today is International Women’s Day, this year it is 100 years since the first group of women got the right to vote in the UK, and UCL is celebrating with a program of events and exhibitions called Vote 100. What better time to share a story from the Grant Museum about one of the pioneering female academics who worked at UCL. I took this opportunity to investigate the woman behind one part of our collection. High on the balcony in the Grant Museum are a pair of ever so slightly dusty microscope slide cabinets containing around 400 slides. Each cabinet bears a little brass plaque that reads – The Doris Livingston Mackinnon Collection of Protozoa University College London Who was Doris Mackinnon, and why is her collection here? Protozoa are not animals, so they are an unusual inclusion in a zoology museum. It was all a bit of a mystery until I started digging into it, here’s what I found out. Any compound microscope needs to use slides to view anything. While you can purchase prepared slides, there is a certain satisfaction or outright professional need to make one’s own slides. Fortunately, blank slides are available for purchase.  However, there is a wide variety of slides available and some might get confused with what kinds of slides they need. The museum collections at the Royal College of Surgeons contain over 50,000 microscope slides. Based on numbers alone, microscope slides form the majority of the RCS collections, but don’t always get the same attention as some of the larger objects. We hope to change that! Some of the finest microscope slides in our collection were produced by John Thomas Quekett (1815 -1861). Quekett was a pioneering histologist who built a collection of slides giving the most astonishing overview of the natural world on a microscopic scale, a natural history collection in miniature.
