EDITORIAL:

 This is the final edition for 2016 of Whewell’s Gazette the weekly #histSTM links list, somewhat delayed by the Christmas holidays we bring you all the histories of science, technology and medicine that our editorial team could find in the deep recesses of cyberspace.

It will be 2017 before we once again gather up all the #histSTM goodies for you, so in place of an editorial we just hope that you had a good Christmas holiday and wish you all the best for a #HistSTM New Year.

The annual end of year Whewell's Gazette Editorial Board photo. Wishing you a Happy #histSTM New Year
