Collectors and Researchers

The following non-commercial sites are maintained by private individuals who are active in the Society. They may feature photographs of instruments in their personal collections or details of their private research interests. The Society does not vouch for the accuracy of the content of such sites but, in each case, it has deemed that the site is likely to be of interest to other members and the wider public.

  • Fons Vanden Berghen (Belgium): Telegraph Instruments of Europe
  • Julian Holland (Australia): Scientific Instrument Makers and Retailers in Australia [inter alia]
  • Neil Handley (UK): Research Interests: Monuments of Science

If you are an individual member of the Society and would like us to link to your personal website contact the webmaster. Please note that the Committee's decision on whether to include a site is final.
