Abstract

This paper outlines how individual collections of books and equipment donated to the University of Cape Town Department of Anaesthesia and Perioperative Medicine developed into the national asset that the Nagin Parbhoo History of Anaesthesia Museum now represents. From the humble beginnings of collections of donated books and early equipment, the article describes how the museum evolved into its present form. The contributions made by many individuals over the last hundred years to this remarkable display of historical artefacts is described.
