File: University Appeal 1919

Scope and Content

Papers relating to an appeal fund launched by the University in 1919 to raise £500,000. The campaign was conducted on both a local and national level. The appeal was less successful than hoped for, and it seems that less than half the sum was collected by 1922. The file includes minutes and papers of the Appeal Fund Executive Committee, but there is also a group of papers about 1921 University bazaar which raised money for the appeal.
