Academic Gown formerly owned by Professor George B. Halford (1824-1910)

The gown is of soft, black grossgrain type of material, lined with magenta silk (St Andrews).

A letter dated 17/6/87 from George Halford (grandson) confirms that he and his wife delivered the "tattered gown and hat" to Professor AH Wood at an earlier date, and were pleased with the restoration of the gown which was displayed in an exhibition in the Medical History Museum.
