Marvellous Movember in the MODNB

Moustaches in the ODNBThe Oxford Dictionary of National Biography has long been a favourite online resource at Treasure Hunt Towers and many happy lunch-hours have been spent browsing among the Fleshly Poets, Sea Dogs and Merrie Men. We’re also jolly keen on moustaches and whiskers (well, who isn’t?) and we like to keep healthy.

Movember, the month when gentlemen grow ‘taches in order to raise awareness of men’s health issues is a great time to combine these interests and the ODNB has helped out with an excellent selection of the most splendid moustaches, mutton chops and whiskers, with subjects ranging from Abbas Hilmi II, last Khedive of Egypt to Sir Joseph Bazalgette, London’s greatest sewer-Tsar. Log in with your library card to find out more.

As Movember draws to a close, it’s decision time. To shave or not to shave?
