Archival history

Queenswood House was purpose-built in 1910-12 as accommodation for the Principal of the City of Leeds Training College, its first occupant was Walter Parsons. From 2004 to 2010 the house was used as living and guest accommodation by Prof. Simon Lee, the then Vice-Chancellor.
Several items of historical interest, mainly concerning the predecessor colleges of the University, were found in Queenswood House. It is supposed that they were collected by Prof. Lee to showcase the history and heritage of the University. The provenance of these items was not recorded.
