Date Range1965 - 1981, Incomplete
Quantity17 cm, 19 folders
ProvenanceProfessor David Arthur Lewis Saunders
Description

The records relate to the activities of the Works of Art Committee (also known as the Works of Art Fund Committee) which was established in 1965 to coordinate and manage the funds raised through subscriptions to the Works of Art Fund. The purpose of the fund was to establish a university collection of art works and it was initially proposed that it be seeded by Faculty contributions. This was not approved by the Education Committee and monies were subsequently raised by means of tax-deductible donations made by university staff. The committee was responsible for purchasing works, advice and arrangement for their display location, and organisation of periodic exhibitions.
