Bloomsbury People

Carole Reeves


The Bloomsbury Project, funded by the Leverhulme Trust, aims to create an archive illustrating nineteenth-century Bloomsbury’s development from swampy rubbish dump to centre of intellectual life. Whilst my academic colleagues focus on the elite reformers, my role, as the Outreach Historian in the Wellcome Trust Centre for the History of Medicine, is to gather information about the ordinary professional and working people of Bloomsbury who contributed to this increasingly vibrant and unique area of London. The objective is to gain an insight into the contemporary social scene on all levels.
