Scope and content
The contents were deposited with the University of East Anglia by Gordon Tilsley in 1988.

Gordon Tilsley was Town Clerk of Norwich during the period in which UEA was established. He served as Secretary to the various groups and committees concerned with first promoting the case for the establishment of a new university, to be situated in East Anglia, and then setting up the new institution.

The papers in this sub-collection are those retained by Gordon Tilsley after the formal establishment of UEA and both precede and complement the University records. Their present order has been determined largely by the use to which they were put when Mr Tilsley was preparing an account of the foundation of UEA at the request of Professor Jimmy Jones (the document in File UEA/TIL/11).

The files include minutes, memoranda, correspondence and MS notes.

In addition to the numbered files listed, there is a small quantity of loose papers, chiefly duplicates of items in the numbered files.

There is at present a great deal of duplication and overlap between files.

Files relating to University appointments are CLOSED.
