Archival history

Anecdotally, collected during the tenure of Professor Simon Lee. The former Principals' House was used as guest accommodation for visitors to the University. This item formed part of a display of items associated with the history of the University. The provenance of this ephemera collection is not known for certain. Believed to be a duplicate set retained by the college while the bulk of records were taken elsewhere, these have now been deposited at the West Yorkshire Archive Service, Leeds.
