Professor Matthew Newsom Kerr’s summer research in the UK was partly funded through a Hackworth Grant through SCU's Markkula Center for Applied Ethics.
Professor Newsom Kerr visited archives in London, Gloucester, and Leicester to learn more about 19th-century pro-vaccination campaigns. He also received a fellowship for future research at the Wellcome Trust Library in London and the Huntington Library in San Marino, CA through the Consortium for the History of Science, Technology and Medicine.
