  • F3836
  • File
  • 1913-1916

Original University of Queensland degree certificate awarded to Walde Gerard Fisher for a Bachelor of Arts with first class honours in the School of Classics, 10 May 1916; and ten original dance card program cards relating to dances Walde Fisher attended between June 1913 and October 1914. Most include handwritten recordings of dance partners by Walde Fisher, and some have coloured pencils attached with coloured cotton yarn.

The dance cards are all small booklets made of lightweight card with the schedule of dances printed on inside the booklet on the left-hand side. On the right-hand side of the booklet there is a space to write, with the pencil provided, the name of dance partner for each dance. Occasionally the dance cards are a double-sided card rather than a booklet. There are four spare pencils with yarn, three cards with no pencil attached and one incomplete card.

South eastern region of Chemistry Building, University of Queensland [Unbuilt]

The proposed Chemistry Annex was to be situated along Circular Drive (now Staff House Road) sitting in a small vacant piece of land adjacent to two wings of the Chemistry building, beside the bookshop, about where the current Global Change Institute sits. These three plans are of the existing chemistry building and are dated, 3rd, 5th and 7th October 1964.

Job A43 Geology Annex, University of Queensland [Unbuilt]

The Geology Annex was submitted with the proposals for the Chemistry Annex and the Western Arts Building to the Australian Universities Commission (A.U.C.) in 1965, and rejected. It was to be situated behind the exiting Geology building, along Circular Drive (now named Staff House Road) between the Physics Annex and the bookshop. It was designed with basement, ground and first to fifth floors. It was resubmitted to the A.U.C. in 1966 and rejected again. This file comprises 16 plans for the proposed geology annex, including pilot plans, elevation, perspective views, floor plans for each level, as well a master planning conception drawing, massing considerations drawing and sketches of Geology annex view from Lake, the North East and from within the court (or intimate space as referred to on one of the concept drawings). One pilot plan dated March 1965.

Proposed Western Arts Building, University of Queensland [Unbuilt]

The Western Arts Building was designed to be geometrically related to the existing surrounding buildings forming a visual relation across Mill Road. It was to sit back from the western end of Main Building (Forgan Smith), linked by a cloister. The pilot plan for the proposed Western Arts Building designed by Birrell was submitted to the Australian Universities Commission (A.U.C.) in 1965 and rejected. Birrell's design was a break from the original design by Hennessy and Hennessy who were eventually commissioned as architects for the Western Arts building (Mitchie Building) on 16 March 1967.

This file consists of 35 plans for proposed New Western Arts building on the St. Lucia campus. Includes: site plans and presentation sketches for floor plans and perspectives.
