Admin HistoryAt the opening of University College, Nottingham, two departments were created, one for Arts and one for Science, and four professors were appointed to teach language and literature, physics, mathematics and mechanics, chemistry, metallurgy and natural science. Over the years the organisation of the University and the range of disciplines taught has constantly evolved. All academic departments now sit within 5 Faculties: Arts, Engineering, Medicine and Health Sciences, Science and Social Sciences.
Custodial HistoryThe photographs have been transferred to Manuscripts and Special Collections at different times between 1988 and 2018.
DescriptionThis section brings together images which have been collected by academic departments and also by individual members of University staff, both academic and administrative. Some of the photographs show early members of staff at University College, Nottingham, including from Physics and Engineering. Physics staff are well represented in this section with a series of undated photographs of individual members of staff, no doubt used in prospectuses or in departmental displays. There are also several photographs relating to Mining Engineering, courses in which ceased to be taught at the University in 2004. Other photographs relating to academic departments can be found in other sections within the UMP collection and also elsewhere within the University archive, particularly under the references UCN, UAD and UAF.
