Edgar Wind's slides


History of Art departmental collection


The Department of the History of Art, originally housed on Beaumont Street, Oxford, assembled a substantial number of slides in support of Edgar Wind's teaching.  Among these is a rare collection of nineteenth and early twentieth century glass lantern slides, including a significant proportion of architectural material.  A few of Professor Wind's lecture slide lists have also survived.

The collection is held by the Visual Resources Centre at the History of Art Department.
