University anniversaries

Jubilee celebrations 1902

Notification of the Jubilee celebrations

The notification of the Jubilee celebrations was sent to the various universities and learned institutions throughout the civilised world, although it was hardly expected that the universities of Europe and America would send representatives to Australia for the special purpose of attending the Celebration.

The notification was in the following terms:

UNIVERSITAS SYDNEIENSIS UNIVERSITATI

S.P.D.

Quinquagesimi anni Academiae hujus feliciter peracti sollemnia, quae in diem undetricesimum Septembris et insequentes quattuor dies indiximus, rite celebraturi, omnes inclitas Universitates gaudii nostri participes esse cupimus; et quamquam veremur, ne, toto paene orbe divisi cum simus, vix satis aequum postulare videamur si rogemus ut aliquem ex insigni coetu veetro hue usque mittatis, qui praesens nobis gratuletur, volumus tamen voe certiores factos, si quern adlegaveritis, noe eum libenter hospitio esse accepturoe.

H. N. MacLaurin, Cancellarius.
A. Renwick, Vice-Cancellarius.
H. E. Barff, Registrarius.
Dabamus Sydneiae X die Februarii, MDCCCCII.


The members of the governing bodies of the Australasian Universities, as well as the professors, lecturers and other high officials, were individually invited to attend.
