Quantity17 cm, 1 bundle + 4 recordings + folders
ProvenanceDepartment of Physics
Description

The records comprise programmes, publicity, invitations and a video of ceremonies celebrating the centenary of (Sir) William Bragg's appointment to the university as Professor of Mathematics and Physics. A Umatic format master tape and a copy on DVD have been added to the series. The series also includes records collected by the Physics Department's Centenary Working Party which, with the cooperation of the University Heritage Committee, organised the celebrations. This coincided with the statewide celebration of South Australia's 150th jubilee year, and hence the Bragg centenary was sponsored by the Jubilee 150 committee. The records include correspondence, a progress report, circulars, programs, information sheets, publications, alumni association publicity materials, an invitation, a dinner menu and a commemoration ceremony program.
