The Gazette: The University of Newcastle, Australia

We are pleased to announce that we have recently digitised every issue of The Gazette, the newsletter of the University of Newcastle, Australia published from 1966 – 1988. In this interesting magazine you can trace the history of the University during its formative years, revisiting such events as the appointment of Sir Alister McMullin as the first Chancellor; the retirement of the James Auchmuty, the first Vice-Chancellor; the building and opening of buildings such as the Auchmuty Library and the Great Hall; visits by famous people such as governors, governors general and judicial and literary figures; and reports of important research and other achievements. Alumni will be interested to see the names of their lecturers and professors, as well as possibly themselves and their colleagues.

The original newsletters are held in Cultural Collections in the Auchmuty Library. PDFs of Volumes 1 to 20 of The Gazette are available from our website.
