Messel Endowment Donation Honour Board

The University of Sydney Physics Foundation established the Messel Endowment in 1999 to honour Emeritus Professor Harry Messel AC CBE and to ensure the Professor Harry Messel International Science School, established in 1962 continues in perpetuity. The Endowment is managed to preserve the real value of all donations received.

To date approximately $3.83 million has been raised. The University of Sydney Physics Foundation appreciates and thanks all our Messel Endowment donors.
