Breakfast, lecture, then off to various libraries for our second of three “work days.” Most students went to the Royal Society’s History of Science Library, the Wellcome Library featuring the history of medicine, or the British Library. Others went searching in London for statutes, plaques, and memorials to the person or institution on whom they are researching and writing.
After a hard day’s work, we enjoyed a first-rate performance of Les Miserables at the Queen’s Theatre. One student had performed in Les Miserables, and most were somewhat familiar with the plot and music either having attended a performance in the States or having seen the 2012 movie version.
