1987.0188 [UNIVERSITY OF MELBOURNE. OFFICE OF THE REGISTRAR]
Date Range of Records: 1944-1953
Creator(s):
- University Of Melbourne. Office Of The Registrar [-]
Student card with photographs. Each card records the student's name, date of matriculation and/or graduation and black-and-white photograph. Council at a meeting on 2 September 1946 decided that all new matriculants (in effect, students enrolling at the University wherever they may have matriculated, and including Canberra University College students) and, later, graduands would be required to be photographed. The photography was done initally by staff of the Faculty Workshops, situated at the rear of the Botany School, and later by the new Visual Aids Department (though obviously other arrangements were made by Canberra University College). The program, which was coordinated by the Registrar, lapsed after a few years, though some individual departments and faculties continued to maintain a parallel system of student cards which often included a photograph.
