Edgar Marcel Wind
|Edgar Wind was the University of Oxford’s first Professor of the History of Art.
In 1954, he was invited to give the Chichele Lectures at All Souls College, where he delivered four lectures on Art and Scholarship under Julius II.
The following year, Wind became Professor of the History of Art, based at Trinity College. By many accounts an inspiring orator, Wind's lectures were
frequently delivered twice over in order to accommodate the large number of attendees.
Materials relating to Wind’s career and his time at Oxford are divided among several University locations:
