John Clennell and the Literary and Philosophical Society at Newcastle-upon-Tyne

Jon Mee

There is a Library Day at the Literary and Philosophical Society of Newcastle-upon-Tyne on February 18. Anyone interested in giving a short paper (10 mins) on the Society or research using its resources should contact me at (jon.mee@york.ac.uk) or Ruth Connolly  (ruth.connolly@newcastle.ac.uk)

I’m planning to talk about John Clennell. Lit Phil missionary to Perth (see Cassie’s post below) and then Hackney, where he set one up. Women seem to have been much more involved at Hackney than in Newcastle. Paul Gaulinius – current President at Newcastle – generously informs me that the recommendation book shows Clennell wanted more involvement for women at Newcastle. I’m waiting for the chance to see what he says next time I go up (archive fever)
