The Hunterian, University of Glasgow
The Hunterian is the legacy of Dr William Hunter (1718 - 1783), a pioneering obstetrician and teacher with a passion for collecting, whose collection was bequeathed to the University of Glasgow in 1783. The Hunterian opened its doors in 1807, making it Scotland’s oldest museum and one of the finest university collections in the world, representing many academic disciplines. 90% of the Zoology Collections specimens are insects, including the extensive J.
