100 Objects

Ted Edwards with the Charter

Ted Edwards with the Charter

100 objects Bradford is a new online exhibition from Special Collections, curated by Alison Cullingford and inspired of course by the British Museum/BBC series.  Each week meet one of the most important or interesting items from Special Collections.

The first object is the University’s Charter, on display outside the admin office in J.B. Priestley Library.  Thanks to “Red” Ted Edwards, our first Vice-Chancellor, the Charter includes a commitment to using knowledge for human welfare, which led to the founding of Peace Studies, and still appears today in ecoversity and other projects.  The image shows Ted with the Charter.

Many of the objects will come from the peace archives at Bradford.  I will post all relevant ones on this site too.
