Local Treasures – Frederick Menkens

Day Shift – 17/09/2013 – 02:10 PM
Presenter: Carol Duncan
Interviewees: Gionni Di Gravio, Archivist, Newcastle University

Gionni Di Gravio discusses an original work, one of only three known copies in existence, by Les Reedman on the Work of Frederick B. Menkens.

The work was brought to our attention by Brian Suters, but only existed on a poor microfilm which we recently digitised and uploaded here:


Prepared when in his early twenties, Les Reedman completed the Architecture Diploma Thesis in 1956 for Newcastle College, or Newcastle University College when under the auspices of the New South Wales University of Technology.

He recently brought in his copy for a better scan to be undertaken.
