Caricatures of Faculty by Lionel Lindsay, 1916
From Faculty of Medicine Online Museum and Archive
In 1916, the student medical society (now known as MedSoc) commissioned Sydney artist and cartoonist, Lionel Lindsay, to produce a series of caricatures to illustrate the pages of their medical journals and other publications. The caricatures were reprinted many times over for decades. Some originals are now part of the University of Sydney Art Collection, whilst many of the original sketches are missing from the University.
We are interested in repatriating any of the original sketches. Please contact Dr Lise Mellor if you have any information.
