Voting on Legislative Proposal: establishment of the C.S. Orwin Collection

Explanatory note

The following Legislative Proposal submitted by Council under Part 2 of Congregation Regulations 2 of 2002 (Supplement (1) to Gazette No. 4633, 9 October 2002, Vol. 133, p. 161 as amended on 12 October 2004, Gazette Vol. 135, p. 214), which is promoted on the recommendation of the Committee for Museums and Scientific Collections, introduces new legislation governing the C.S. Orwin Collection. The collection was bequeathed to the University in 1947 by Dr C.S. Orwin, founding Director of the Institute for Research into Agricultural Economics. It has been determined subsequently that the bequest effectivelycreated a charitable trust, for whose formal existence provision is hereby made.

WHEREAS it is expedient to introduce new provisions governing the C.S. Orwin Collection, NOW THE UNIVERSITY OF OXFORD, in exercise of the powers in that behalf conferred upon it by the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge Act, 1923, and of all other powers enabling it, ENACTS, subject to the approval of Her Majesty in Council, as follows.

In the Schedule to the Statutes (Supplement (1) to Gazette No. 4633, 9 October 2002, pp. 133–59), after Part 66 insert the following new Part 67:

'Part 67: C.S. Orwin Collection

67.1. A collection of paintings and prints has been received by the University from Dr C.S. Orwin. The collection is to be retained and exhibited so far as practicable as a single collection within the University at such location as is considered appropriate from time to time, with power for the University to lend the collection wholly or in part (but in so far as practicable as a whole) from time to time to such other museum or institution for public display as it considers appropriate.

67.2. The administration of the collection shall be under the general direction of the Committee for the Museums and Scientific Collections.

67.3. Congregation may from time to time amend this Part so long as the main object of the bequest, as defined in section 67.1 above, is always kept in view.'
