Around fifty (50) persons chiefly from the UWI but included representatives from the University of Technology, Jamaica and the Jamaica Archives visited the UWI Archives on June 9 to commemorate International Archives Day and the first anniversary of the fire which almost destroyed the Archives. For the occasion the Archives mounted an exhibition entitled ‘Art & Archives’ which featured some of the art work on the campus and the records (letters, drawings etc.) which pertained to them. Also on display were some of the Archives valuable records such as the 1972 Royal Charter and the earliest minute books of the Council (1947 – 1958) and the Senate (1948 – 1956).
You can access photographs of the event on the Archives Facebook, (http://www.facebook.com/pages/The-University-Archives-of-the-UWI/167480369978318). Join Us!
