The physical display that formed the basis of this on-line exhibition was made possible by the generous support of the UC Foundation.
UC Arts also worked with the Chemistry programme of UC’s School of Physical and Chemical Sciences and the MacMillan Brown Library and would like to acknowledge these collaborative partners for their contributions to this project.
Special acknowledgement of the Chemistry Old Guys and Girls Society, in particular Dr. Robin Mann, Professor Emeritus John Blunt and Dr. John Packer, was also vital to the genesis and success of this project.
As part of the activities associated with the physical display, a permanent acknowledgment in the form of a Chemical balance in a case is displayed on Level 3 of the UC Arts building in the Arts Centre, to acknowledge the history of the site for current users.
