Hi David,

We are currently planning just such an exhibition -- it opens at the Museum in September 2011. Look out for our new Scott sisters web section, it should be live in the next few days with lots more information and digital copies from our wonderful Scott collections.

I think the Scott family were a remarkable family would it be absolutely fantastic if sometime in the future a public exhibition bringing together museum specimens, books and art is created to celebrate this remarkable family’s contribution to science.
