Staff from New College and UNSW, together with family & friends of Kit Milner gathered for a morning tea on 24 September 2010 to view the new Kit Milner Scientific Instruments Display. The wall display covers some of the significant events at the UNSW School of Physics. A separate display cabinet houses personal artefacts highlighting Milner’s student life, work, literary interests and Christian faith.

There were several short speeches from the College Master, Prof. Trevor Cairney and family members. The concept for an exhibit originated from the College’s desire to acknowledge the Milner family’s contributions to New College Village and recognise academics of UNSW’s past whose work shaped the university as we know today. All four of Kit’s children were involved in the development of the exhibit. Following the speeches, guests wandered through the NCV foyer viewing the exhibit and scientific instruments. It was an enjoyable time for family and friends to catch up and reminisce.
