This collection of 34 boxes of lantern slides were originally used as a means to illustrate lectures given by Dr John Hardie Wilson (1858-1920), a lecturer in botany at the University of St Andrews, Scotland. Certain parts of the collection may date from after the collector's death as it is suspected that his collection was actively used by the Botany Department following his tenure at the University.
