Good Vibrations – The University of Dundee in 1967

Good Vibrations – The University in 1967
An exhibition by Archive Services and Museum Services in the Lamb Gallery, Tower Building, University of Dundee

As the University of Dundee celebrates its 50th anniversary as an independent institution, this special exhibition explores what was going on in that pivotal year, both on campus and in the city as a whole. 
Using rarely seen photographs, documents, artworks and artefacts it describes the major developments in the University – its new buildings and departments, its pioneering research areas – as well as looking at what life was like as a student in Dundee at that time. 
The exhibition also explores what was happening in separate institutions that are now part of the University such as Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Dundee College of Education.
