Level of description
UEA Bulletin
Scope and content
Includes correspondence, chiefly 1972-1973; Typescript and MS draft articles submitted for publication, with a small number of related photographs; and an unbound set of the 'UEA Bulletin', as published.

This sub-collection was donated by Judith Crabtree in February 1993.

The 'Bulletin', later 'UEA Bulletin', began publication in October 1965 in the light of the rapid growth of UEA, as a publication "which would tell us what is going on" [foreword to the first issue by the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Frank Thistlethwaite]. The publication schedule was determined by the dates of meetings of the University's Senate and Council, and appeared between three and five times a year. The first editor was Dr Michael Sanderson, a member of faculty in the School of Economic and Social Studies.

In February 1968 John Kimber, a senior librarian, took over the editorship and this marked the transition of The Bulletin from a newspaper to a general review, and a change of format from quarto to octavo. A new series began publication in October of that year.

In the August 1975 issue the last editor, Judith Crabtree, also of the University Library, announced that publication was being suspended as part of a round of economies "the Freeze" throughout the University. Publication was never resumed.
