Betty Fletcher: Lover of Wisdom, Lover of Beauty, Lover of Humanity
In 2017, The Alumni Friends of the University of Queensland celebrates its 50th Anniversary. To mark this important anniversary, Betty Fletcher: Lover of Wisdom, Lover of Beauty, Lover of Humanity explores the life and legacy of Betty Fletcher, a keen supporter of the Alumni Friends of UQ, Friends of Antiquity, Antiquities Museum and the University of Queensland.
In 1991 the Friends of Antiquity, a support group of the Alumni Friends of UQ, established the Betty Fletcher Memorial Fund, which maintains a travelling scholarship enabling a student studying Classics and Ancient History at UQ to travel to any place that was part of the civilisations of Rome or Ancient Greece. The first Travelling Scholarship was awarded in 1992.
The physical exhibition to accompany this online show can be viewed in the main office of the School of Historical and Philosophical Inquiry, Level 3, Forgan Smith Building, UQ, from August 2017.
Curated by Dr Janette McWilliam, Mr James Donaldson and Ms Jaime Cubit, 2017.
