Administrative HistoryReid's lecture on the Structure and Functions of the Human Body gave his audience a general introduction to human anatomy. It appears to have been re-worked under various titles, including 'General Anatomy', 'General Anatomy of the Human Body', 'Human Body in General' and 'A Talk about the Human Body'. Under these titles it was delivered to a number of groups, including new recruits of the Caledonian Railway Ambulance Brigade, 24 January 1904, prisoners of Craiginches Prison, Aberdeen, 8 November 1904, the Aberdeen, Caithness, Orkney and Shetland Association, 15 February 1905, and Aberdeen and District Branch of the Royal Life-Saving Society', 24 May 1907.

The lecture lasted for an hour and a half and was illustrated by lantern slides. In all cases, the lecture appears to have been deliverd in the anatomy lecture theatre, Marischal College and was followed by an inspection of the anatomy and anthropological museums.
