University Chancellors, Vice-Chancellors and Deputy Chancellors
Many University of Melbourne office bearers were influential members of society within the fields of jurisprudence, medical science or business, and are therefore of interest to both historians of the University and to more general researchers.
The University of Melbourne Archives (UMA) hold the papers of seven chancellors, five deputy chancellors, eleven vice-chancellors and three deputy vice-chancellors.
Lists of Chancellors and Vice-Chancellors can be found in the University of Melbourne Office of the Chancellor Collection and University of Melbourne Office of the Vice-Chancellor Collection.
Full list of all senior University of Melbourne office bearers.
NB. The original subject guide for UM Chancellors was made possible through a generous donation by the Baillieu family and has been included within this guide.
