Online Animal Museum: History and Animals
I have just had accepted various articles for an online museum exhibition ‘ Be Kind: A Visual History of Humane Education 1880 -1945’to be launched by the National Museum of Animals and Society on 2 July 2012.
The online museum already features various fascinating visual material and (mainly American) artifacts including a 1930s ink blotter of the ‘Miss B’Kind Animal Protection Club’.
I like their striking postcards though not sure I agree with the wording. Even ‘badly behaved’ animals only make history if people choose to write about them and recognise their actions as historical!
Details of my articles on animal campaigning badges will follow once the exhibition is launched.
