2016 Anniversary

This event is the Linnean Society of London’s Annual General Meeting. The event begins with the presentation of annual medals, recognising outstanding contributions to the Natural Sciences and will be followed by the AGM and the Presidential Address from Professor Paul Brakefield FRS PLS.

Join us for the launch of The Lord Treasurer of Botany, the Society’s definitive biography of its founder, Sir James Edward Smith. Written by Archivist Tom Kennett, this new and honest work details Smith’s life, from his beginnings as the son of a Norwich textile merchant to his becoming a focal point for the study of botany and natural science in the UK and Europe. Original material will be on display, as well as an exhibition of bespoke drawings used to illustrate the book. Copies of this fascinating book will be available for purchase.

A full agenda for the Anniversary Meeting 2016 can be found here.

This meeting is for Fellows and their guests only, who are invited to accompany the President, Officers and Medal winners to dinner. Places are limited and dinner costs £49 a head (including three courses, wine and coffee). Registration for the event dinner is essential. We kindly request that you register and make your menu selections by completing this form by 1 May 2016.
