Robert William Innes Smith (1872-1933), originally from Edinburgh, worked as a GP in Sheffield. He was an avid collector of medical books and portraits, and was well known for his extensive knowledge of medical history and biography. This exhibition shows a small selection from both the Innes Smith Collection and the Innes Smith Medical Portraits Collection, about eminent physicians... and poets, chemists, philanthropists and murderers!
