Series 977 - Mawson Antarctic Collection Records

Date Range1911 - 2001, Mostly 1996-1999
Quantity12 cm, 32 folders + 2 publications
ProvenanceMawson Antarctic Collection Appeal
Description

The Mawson family officially donated Sir Douglas Mawson's collection of over 100,000 items to the University of Adelaide in 1996. In a joint venture with the South Australian Museum, the Mawson Antarctic Collection Appeal was launched to fund preservation work and displays at the museum. Although the target figure was raised, the cost of establishing a permanent display escalated eventually resulting in the collection's ownership being transferred to the museum in 2002. The records consist of minutes, reports, correspondence, copies of legal documents, promotional items and publications which appear to have been collated by Mr. Bruce Webb AM, Chancellor of the University of Adelaide and Chairman of the Leadership Gifts Committee.
