Photograph (?Platinum Print, Framed) of a Group of Oxford Chemists, a Formal Dyson Perrins Laboratory Group Portrait, c.1916-19

Inventory Number: 13316
Object Type:
Accession Number: 1998-5
Brief Description: Mounted, framed, and glazed, sitters identified in rough pencil inscriptions on backing board. They are: back, A. Hynd, F. C. Hall, Walter E. Ellis, Collins, L. Codd, G. R. Clemo; middle row, Capt E. van Wegenbergh, E. Hope, P. May, A. L. Bloomfield, Attwell, Durrens, Ranwez; front, Kenyon, Sidgwick, W. H. Perkin, John Watts, T. V. Barker. The date written on the back is '1919 ?1920', and it certainly belongs to the period 1916-19 (Wegenberg and Ranwez are wartime refugee scientists from Belgium); it could well be the first Dyson Perrins Laboratory group photograph taken after the laboratory building (behind the group) was completed in 1916.
Primary Inscriptions: Framer's label of George Davis, Oxford. Identifying inscriptions on backing board.
Provenance: Transferred from the Dyson Perrins Laboratory, Oxford, in 1998.
