Our Golden Beginnings

'Our Golden Beginnings' is an online exhibition on the philanthropic origins of the University of Leicester in the early 1900s. The exhibition is focused on the individual stories of the donations gifted during the founding of the University after the First World War ended in 1918. This is to commemorate those who have sacrificed much in aid of higher education at Leicester. This is part of the 'So thay may have life project' which is a National Lottery Heritage Funded project by the University of Leicester Special Collections.
