About the Professor Stewart E. Fraser Poster Collection:

Emeritus Professor Stewart E. Fraser (1929-2001) was born and spent much of his childhood in Tianjin, China. He was educated at the Universities of Melbourne, Oxford, Stanford, Colorado and London. In 1976, with Professor Ronald Goldman, they established the then innovative School of Education at La Trobe University. Breaking with the tradition of organising the School in terms of disciplines, they structured it in ‘centres’, according to the research interests of the teaching staff.

Professor Fraser was committed to building strong connections with Asia, particularly with China and Vietnam, well before these countries began opening up to the West. His interest in public health issues led him to begin collecting posters, intrigued with the poster as a medium of communication.In 1976 he published the text 100 Great Chinese Posters, one of the earliest publications on the area.

The Stewart E. Fraser Poster Collection is one of the largest of its kind. It contains close to 4,000 posters, predominately from China, as well as examples from Russia, Vietnam and Australia.
