Title:
W. W. Francis and R. H. Hill at work on the Osler Library Catalog at 13 Norham Gardens, Oxford
Description:
Undated photo of William Willoughby Francis, the first Osler librarian, and Reginald Harrison Hill, of the Bodleian Library, at work on a catalog of Osler's library. They are in Osler's consulting room at 13 Norham Gardens, the Oslers' home in Oxford from 1907 to their deaths. The Oslers entertained so often there, and housed visitors so frequently, the house became known as "The Open Arms".. This picture was one of a series taken by John Farquhar Fulton, a doctor and bibliophile, before Osler's book collection was removed to McGill University. (Osler bequeathed his library to McGill on his death in 1919; the Osler Library opened there in 1929.). [Description courtesy of McGill University.]
