On Thursday 7th May Meg Parkes, Honorary Research Fellow at the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine, will speak about The Secret Art of Survival. Meg has a detailed understanding of the history of prisoners of war in the Far East based on many hours of interviews which have formed the basis for her academic work, and her talk is based on an exhibition of the same name which was visited by members of the Art Appreciation Group and which runs until 20th June this year at the Victoria Gallery and Museum, Liverpool University. Soldiers returning from imprisonment in camps in the Far East faced a lack of understanding regarding their complex medical needs and the work undertaken by the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine in aiding their rehabilitation has been ground breaking. The project lasted from 1945 until the late 1990s. It was discovered that one of the ways people coped with seemingly unendurable conditions was to draw the world around them. The consequences if they were discovered were grave but the results, often kept as cherished mementos, form the basis of the exhibition.

Speaker Meeting

On Thursday 4th June author and historian David Hearne will talk to us about Sir William Brown. The Brown family, who were originally linen merchants, moved from Ballymena in Ireland to Baltimore, USA in 1800. Ten years later William Brown, the oldest son of the family, moved to Liverpool to take charge of the family’s business activities in Europe. Two other brothers established offices in Philadelphia and New York while the youngest brother remained in Baltimore. Within 30 years the family had expanded their business and were heavily involved in banking and many different types of trade with $1 in every $6 of US trade passing through their hands.

Although everyone is aware of William Brown Street in Liverpool, fewer people know the story of the man himself. William Brown’s story is one of sparkling financial success coupled with philanthropy in Liverpool on a grand scale and yet, as we will see, still somewhat of a sad life.
