50 Years of Giving

Over the past 50 years, the Alumni Friends of The University of Queensland (previously the Alumni Association of The University of Queensland), have contributed seventeen ancient artefacts and other works to the collection of the R.D. Milns Antiquities Museum. 

These works are both historically and monetarily valuable and have enabled the Museum to fulfil its mission to educate Queenslanders about the past for over 50 years. In 2017 the Alumni Friends of The University of Queensland celebrates its Golden Jubilee and this exhibition explores the significance of the philanthropic contributions made by the Alumni Friends since their foundation.

Sixteen of the seventeen objects presented here are on show at the RD Milns Antiquities Museum Gallery in late 2017 and early 2018. Visit us at Level 2, Building 9, UQ St Lucia Campus.
