This exhibition consists of 76 caricature sketches of university employees drawn by Charles Shuttleworth (Jim) Smith (1908 - 2001).
Mr Smith was an electrician/custodian at the university from the early 1950s until 1973. The sketches were all drawn before his retirement, so they generally consist of men who were employed at the university in the 1950s and 1960s.
The sketch of Terry Kennedy includes the remark "last opus of Jim Smith 1972", but it is unclear if this was indeed Smith's final sketch of the set, as none of the others are dated. The sketches mainly feature men who were employed in the various sections of the Property Department, but also include some who worked in the university administration.
The sketches are framed and were originally on display in the Property Department - now known as Estate Management. In 2011 the sketches were transferred to UNSW Archives.
