Description Of Item: Foolscap size cream manila folder, 2 spring binder, containg letters to and from Barry Cole written in 1999.
Historical Significance: These letters were written in the year that Professor Cole resigned (on March 31 1999). Some are letters of appreciation of his service. The most interesting is a letter from Barry Cole to the the President of OAA Vic Dic John Warren refusing the offer of life membership and giving the reasons why it is refused. It is an account of the friction between the College and the OAAVic Div that troubled Professor Cole for three decades and which hindered many of the developments of the College in that time.
