Alumni mementos

The exhibition is arranged into five themed sections: Learning; The Student Experience; Journeys; Treasures; and Solidarity (the latter with a particular focus on Chile under Pinochet, and the Spanish Civil War).

We're delighted to include personal mementos from former students, including a number from Jean Henderson (née Wagstaff), mother of our Rector, Ann Henderson.

Year Abroad memorabilia includes photos collected by Edinburgh Global, which connects students and staff from the University of Edinburgh with the world.
