07 Dec 2011 - 18 Mar 2012

The University Archives and the University Museum and Art Gallery of The University of Hong Kong are pleased to announce an exhibition on the history of the University through the collections of the University Archives, as part of the University’s Centenary celebrations.

The exhibition introduces the development of the University from its founding in 1911 to the present day. Over 100 archival records and artefacts are displayed. Some are provided by the Museum and student groups. Many of them have not been exhibited before. The rare items include the Mace, silver inkstand and ceremonial trowels as well as the 1912 silver model of the Main Building and its original architectural drawings given to Governor Sir Frederick Lugard in 1916.

As the first exhibition to feature the collections of the University Archives, it will also foreground the important role that archives play in preserving both personal and institutional histories, and some of the conservation concerns in taking care of artefacts of the past.
