Description

The exhibition was held in the Rare Books Exhibition space, Sir Louis Matheson Library, Monash University from 19 March - 17 May 1998. The HIV/AIDS Collection in the Rare Books Library of Monash University comes from two main sources. The first followed the closure of Fairfield Hospital in 1996, when a suitable home needed to be found for the Ian Goller collection of early AIDS/HIV material. After discussion with Richard Overell, Lee Visser, Ian Goller's executor, agreed to the transfer. In addition, Louise Lyons, Director of Information Technology at Fairfield Hospital, gave permission to go through the remnants of the collection at the Vivian Bullwinkel Education Centre and Social Biology Resource Centre. This included the file of newspaper cuttings which is so useful for the interpretation of society's attitudes to the developing epidemic. The second source was the material assembled by Richard Travers and presented to Monash in May 1997 as part of the ongoing transfer of his medical collection.
