Event description

Description

A talk by Stephanie Davies about the family connection of Florence Nightingale to Lotherton Hall and her involvement with the design of Leeds General Infirmary. Florence worked closely with Sir Douglas Galton, the father of Gwendolen Gascoigne, developing and designing safe hospitals.

According to Florence Nightingale, Sir Douglas Galton was the first person who ‘brought sanitary into Engineering’. He became Florence’s right- hand man, first in the design of military hospitals and then General Hospitals including Leeds General Infirmary.
