Description

The University of Adelaide's Department of Adult Education was established with the Board of Adult Education in 1958 to replace the Joint Committee for Tutorial Classes. Compiled by the Department between 1959 and 1973, these clippings are largely from Adelaide and regional South Australian papers. They reflect the variety of adult education programs coordinated by the University, often in conjunction with the WEA or other community organisations. Articles can be found on regular as well as one-off programs in addition to issues and debates relating to or involving the Department and adult education in general.
