The Galton Collection
The Victorian scientist Sir Francis Galton F.R.S. bequeathed a collection of objects to University College London on his death in 1911. These objects, which include Galton's personal effects, custom-made instruments used in his research and objects from the Galton Laboratory now compose the UCL Galton Collection. The Galton Collection is now a resource for teaching at UCL, for schools, and for researchers with an interest in the history of science.
