Historical Significance: The College provided post-graduate lectures (continuing education) for optometrists, taking over this function from the Victorian Optical Association (see cat No 551 for programs of post graduate lectures of the VOA). This program for 1947 features J H Prince FBOA FSMC FIO who lectured on ocular prothesis, night blindness, ocular evolution and comparative anatomy. Jack Prince was an English optometrist who was an academic in optometry at Ohio State University and published three books on ocular anatomy 1956, 1960 and 1964. He has some 26 publications on PubMed from 1953 to 1963. Also featured were lectures by Ernst Goetz on vertex refraction. A film made by the London Refraction Hospital on contact lenses was shown. The program for 1948 features B Blumberg MSc FVOA, D Buckle MBMS DPM a psychiatrist, WT Agara an academic physiologist and LC Hopper a senior lecturer in physics.
