Abstract/Summary At one time the start of every academic year included an official welcome to the first year, or fresher, students. The ceremony included speeches by the Vice-Chancellor and the president of the Student's Union. In this image Vice-Chancellor Sir Fred Schonell talks to the students in the Great Court. Sadly, this was the last welcome by Sir Fred as he passed away in February 1969.
