Thank you

26 April 2021

College House, located at 254-260 Albert Street, East Melbourne has been a cornerstone of RANZCOG’s identity and history since 1983. College House has hosted many meetings, Council Weeks and soirées and holds many happy memories for Fellows, Diplomates, trainees and staff who have passed through its doors.

RANZCOG pays tribute and acknowledges our members from past and current committees, Councils and Boards as well as donors who have contributed to the College over the past 40 years. Your support, hard work and service have formed a solid foundation for RANZCOG that will enable us to continue the important work of the College, and our commitment to the women of Australia and New Zealand.

The generous philanthropic support and gifts of books, photographs, paintings, artefacts and other objects, as well as volunteered time and effort, helped establish a base where members could plan and work, to live out our mission of providing Excellence in Women’s Health.

Preserving our history

RANZCOG will preserve as much of our history as possible during the move to Bowen Crescent. The Historical Collections Committee, their input and experience have been valuable in the assessment of the rich history that has been accumulated over the years.

A substantial amount of the collection will be relocated, some will be archived, and some will be displayed in a digital, multimedia format at Bowen Crescent, along with a history of each item.
There is a clear commitment from the College Board and staff to develop a contemporary display of the extended College Collection including a digital display of stored museum items, a history of College Council, Boards and Presidents and the work of committees via digitised portraits and accompanying profile information.
Historical Collections Funds
The College has dedicated historical funds donated by the Friends of the College Collection. These funds have remained intact since the bulk of the Collection was moved into storage off-site and they will be used exclusively for the maintenance and enhancement of items in the Collection. Any proceeds from the auction of historical items will be added to these dedicated funds and will also be utilised for the ongoing maintenance, storage and upkeep of the Collection.
The RANZCOG Supporter Wall
The RANZCOG Supporter Wall is a similar initiative to that of our colleagues at The Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG), for the opening of their new College building in the United Kingdom. The wall will have many panels that will showcase individuals and groups who have made a specific financial contribution to the College. Funds from the sale of these panels will also go to the preservation of our historical collections.
