        Todhunter Collection:
        John Todhunter started to document English Parish churches whilst an undergraduate at Trinity College, Cambridge in May 1924. After university, he trained as a barrister, and worked as legal advisor to the Ministry of Education, London. For fifty-one years (the last entry dated November 1977) he visited, photographed and made detailed notes on 2,103 churches all over England, with a focus on those in East Anglia. This collection was bequeathed to UEA on his death. Prof. Andrew Martindale, Dean of the School of Fine Arts and Music, visited Mrs Patricia Todhunter, John’s widow, in Suffolk to inspect the collection. He discovered at Gillingham Hall, a “remarkable” collection of eighty-five volumes of photographs and notes. Prof. Martindale recommended that the gift be received and relocated to the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts (where it is still housed today).
