University Archives Call for Life Sciences Material

We need you!

The University Archives are looking for material related to the School of Life Sciences that might be useful in putting together an exhibition to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the appointment of Peter Garland as the first Chair of Biochemistry. This is also an opportunity to ensure that the past and present achievements of the School are recorded and preserved for the future.

We are interested in all aspects of the School and its history including subjects such as biochemistry, biological sciences, anatomy and physiology, and people connected to the School. 

Material that we need includes:

  • Photographs (with dates, and people and locations identified). These could be of staff members, notable events, buildings etc.
  • Records relating to Life Sciences. This could include a wide variety of material, from meeting minutes, relevant emails & letters, newsletters, reports about the School, research or teaching notes etc. 
  • Personal stories, whether through organising an oral history interview or through written media.
  • Objects that have been used in Life Sciences. Could include old teaching charts or laboratory equipment etc.

If you have any of interest then you can contact the Archives by visiting directly in the Tower Building basement and bringing along any material, or get in touch through email (archives@dundee.ac.uk) or telephone (01382 384095).
