The IBMT and Marx Memorial Library are hosting an online talk on Douglas Jolly on 28 May. It will take place as a video conference on Zoom from 8pm to 9.30pm, and be given by Dr David Lowe. Those registered for the talk will receive an email with details 24 hours before it is scheduled.

David Lowe is an intensive care specialist at St Vincent’s Hospital in Sydney, Australia. An interest in the life and work of Douglas Jolly was sparked by reading a biographical paper in 1990. Last year, with Wellington-based Spanish Civil War historian Mark Derby, he published a paper on the life and work of Dr Jolly in the Journal of Medical Biography.

You can register for the talk here.
