John Waller medallion

By Phil Greaves

The Club was fortunate in acquiring a bronze medallion of John Green Waller, President of the Quekett from 1896 to 1898.  In addition to his microscopical interests, Waller was an accomplished artist and the reverse side of the medallion documents his awards.  The medallion measures 52mm × 43mm and, other than a single photograph of Waller, is the only item we hold relating to this President.

This is an important addition to the Club’s collections and we are grateful to the vendor for offering the medallion to the Club for purchase, which was funded by an anonymous donation.
