Interview – Harry Daly Museum

Housed in a high-rise office block in North Sydney, the Harry Daly Museum collection focuses on the advancements in the science and practice of anaesthesia.

Dr Reginald Cammack and Dr Rajesh Haridas were kind enough show us over their unique museum.


The collection of the Harry Daly Museum was established by Dr Harry Daly, an anaesthetist with a passion for preserving the history of the profession. Daly was also a founder of the Australian Society of Anaesthetists (ASA), who operate the museum today. Over time the collection was shaped and expanded by donations from many other doctors and hospitals and has been housed in several locations throughout its lifetime.

The Harry Daly Museum, Richard Bailey Library and Gwen Wilson Archives are located at the ASA head office and are under the guidance of the History of Anaesthesia Library, Museum and Archives Committee.
