A portrait, seated, in profile to the right, of John Rutter, one of the founders of the Liverpool Medical Institution. Liverpool Medical Institution is one of the oldest medical societies in the world, tracing its origins to the founding of the Liverpool Medical Library in 1779. For 50 years the Liverpool Medical Library was situated variously at the Liverpool Infirmary on Shaw's Brow, and the Liverpool Dispensary in Church Street. In the 1830s a campaign masterminded by Dr John Rutter, led to the raising of sufficient funds to erect the present building, which was opened in May 1837.
