The Heap Mannam Collection consists of antique furniture, household items, books and works of art. Of particular note are the many examples of high Victorian decorative arts with oriental influences, displaying an English interest in distant imperial territories.
Dr John and Mrs Isobel Mannam very generously donated this collection of valuable artefacts to the University over a period of time in honour of their parents.
Justice Kemeri Murray, a member of the Flinders University Council (1974-1996) and friend of Dr and Mrs Mannam, was instrumental in introducing them to the appropriate University representatives to initiate the collection. Justice Murray subsequently donated some items given to her as gifts by Mrs Mannam to add to the collection.
