Minds of Melbourne Connect: Dr Richard Gillespie, Curator of the Engineering and Information Technology Collections

Dr Richard Gillespie's personal history is closely intertwined with The University of Melbourne. Dr Gillespie studied and taught at the University before plying his trade in the world of museums. It's only fitting then that after 25 years the University again came calling for Dr Gillespie.
