angle-left The Phyllis Walker Collection article

A collection of books, pamphlets and government publications on the subject of animal rights and vivisection.


About Phyllis Walker

Phyllis Walker (d.1987), who lived in the West End of Glasgow, was President of The Scottish Anti-Vivisection Society (SAVS) for many years. The Society set up a student essay prize worth £100 in her memory. After her death, a collection of anti-vivisection books, pamphlets, papers and other publications were donated to the Mitchell library. She often wrote to The Glasgow Herald expressing concern over animal welfare, particularly animals who are used in laboratory experiments.


About the collection

The collection consists of about 200 books, pamphlets and government publications on the subject of animal rights and vivisection. Topics covered in the collection include cruelty to animals, animal legislation, farm animal welfare, the fur trade and the emotive subject of vivisection. The collection includes a copy of the Cruelty to Animals Act of 1876. Most of the material is from the 1950s, 1960s, 1970s and 1980s.
