Correspondents are more often individuals. Some correspondents have included their own poetry. Often there will be written across the top of the letter 'answered' but very few copies of the outgoing correspondence are attached.

Birrell, James, 1928-

Dental School, University of Queensland

The University of Queensland Faculty of Dentistry was formed in 1935 and was located at various locations throughout the city including Turbot Street. In the early 1960s there was a desire to have the Dental School transferred from its location in Turbot Street to the St. Lucia campus with Birrell writing a report in favour of this is in 1964. However the Australian Universities Commission did not support this idea. Rather they offered money to extend the Turbot Street facilities and to use space within the Physiology Building to house preclinical training. The new dental school at St. Lucia campus was not built.
