The University of Newcastle Archives

The Archives of the University of Newcastle

 

The inhouse Archives of the University of Newcastle (1942+) encompass the archives of the University as well as the former Newcastle Teachers' College (1949+) (later the Hunter Institute of Higher Education) and the Newcastle Conservatorium of Music (1952+).

The University Movement began with a series of radio broadcasts in 1943 on Newcastle stations 2NC and 2KO, when Newcastle's leading citizens urged the formation of a University at Newcastle. About that time Newcastle came under a Japanese shelling raid, but that did not thwart the determination of Novocastrians to push for University education in their city.

The University in-house archives, dating from the 1940s, document the administration and history of Australia's largest and most diverse regional University, and comprise permanent records received from some 420 University sources, which include:

The in-house archive has now become a very strong administrative and research resource and encompasses a range of physical formats: minutes, files, thesesoral history tapes, plans, drawings and an extensive photograph collection.

Access

Note: Records less than 30 years old and records containing personal information are generally not available for research use. Questions relating to access should be directed to the University Archivist. As records are regularly accessioned into the University Archives, these lists may not fully reflect the holdings and are meant as a guide only.
