FOUR FOUNDATION PROFESSORS Panel presentation of ‘thumb-nail’ profiles: 1. Professor A. D. Ross - Dr. John Robins 2. Professor H. E. Whitfeld - Winthrop Professor John Melville-Jones 3. Professor E. O. G. Shann - Dr. Pamela Statham Drew (read by Dr. Joan Pope) 4. Professor W. J. Dakin - Dr. Brenton Knott

Eight professorial staff were appointed during 1912 and arrived at the new University of Western Australia at Irwin Street in Perth ready to commence classes in March 1913. The UWA Historical Society is delighted to take this opportunity to re-introduce these pioneering figures, and plans another panel later in the year to acknowledge Professors N. T. Wilsmore, W. G. Woolnough, J. W. Paterson and W. L. Murdoch.

Their disciplines were shared between three Faculties and in addition to their teaching duties most served, on a rotational basis, as Vice-Chancellor.

You may care to bring your own picnic afternoon tea to enjoy in the grounds or on the verandah. The Reid Library café is open until 4pm, or the UWA Club café is open until 5pm.
