Changing attitudes to whaling in the 20th century

Special Collections at the University of St Andrews Library is pleased to be putting on an exhibition which will explore changing views on whaling at both North and South Poles. Now we consider commercial whaling to be morally unacceptable, but for two centuries whales were just another commodity to be exploited for their valuable oil, essential for many everyday processes.
