Dr Marion Adams (1932–1995) was dean of the Faculty of Arts from 1988 to 1993. Throughout her life she acquired an impressive collection of artefacts from the ancient Near and Far East, Egypt, Greece and Rome, Africa and the Americas. Marion Adams’s husband, David Adams, has continued to add to this collection in her memory, and has generously donated selected items from the collection to the University of Melbourne.
