Muir Hunter Museum exhibits and Twitter and the Cork Archive
I have recently opened a twitter account (that automatically links to linkedin) and have been uploading some images of items from the Muir Hunter Museum of Bankruptcy at Kingston Law School. The museum serves as a repository for all things related to insolvency history. We have, inter alia, all Professor Muir Hunter QC's Cork papers. These are currently being catalogued at the museum and we are about to start a fundraising campaign to digitise these important documents.
The itmes that have been uploaded to twitter to date are:
