Who was Charles Bage

Doc bio

Dr Charles Bage was born on 7 October 1859 and died on 7 December 1930. He had a medical practice in South Yarra, Victoria until 1923. On 30 March 1899, Augustus Glissan sent Oscar's sketchbook to Bage, an old family friend. Bage gave the book to his colleague Sir Colin MacKenzie, the founder of the Institute of Anatomy. When the National Museum of Australia took over the Institute of Anatomy's collection, it also acquired Oscar's precious drawings.
