SPRI Review 1996: Friends of the Scott Polar Research Institute

Friends of the Scott Polar Research Institute

We welcome new members and thank everyone for their support. Subscriptions, covenants, and donations amounting to £5127.90 were received during the year. This support, which is gratefully acknowledged, was used to purchase additions for the collections and to conserve archival material. In addition many members gave extra donations towards the Shackleton Memorial Library building fund. The membership has also increased with the appointment of Dr Pamela Davis for fundraising and business development; Dr Davis assisted the Friends in a public relations capacity and organised events during the year.

Thanks go to Mrs Philippa Foster Back, chairman of the Friends Committee; Mrs Jennifer Dale, Friends membership secretary; and Ms Teresa Clarke, secretary to the Friends committee. We would also like to thank Ron Wilbraham and Tony Billinghurst for their regular help with the map collection and archives, respectively. Thanks are also due to Robert Menzies and Mary Swithinbank.
