  • 1913-1926

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. Fisher's name has been amended: the end of his first name, 'mar', has been scratched off, the 'h' in his middle name has been blacked out, and the 'c' has been covered in his surname.

Ten original dance program cards relating to dances Walde Fisher attended. 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. Occassionally the dance cards are a double-sided card rather than a booklet. There are three spare pencils with yarn, two cards with no pencil attached and one incomplete card. The dance card details are: 18 Jun 1913, UQSU (University of Queensland Student Union). -- 26 Jun 1913, St John’s College, Brisbane. -- 5 Jul 1913, University Hall (organised by Faculty of Arts). -- 16 May 1914, University Hall (organised by Faculties of Science and Engineering). -- 10 Jun 1914, UQSU. -- 25 Jun 1914, St John’s College, Brisbane. -- 25 Jun 1914, St John’s College, Brisbane. -- 3 Jul 1914, St Mary’s Hall, Women’s College. -- 17 Oct 1914, Juvenile Ball in aid of Red Cross Fund by Miss St. Ledger’s pupils, Centennial Hall. -- Undated, Unknown.
