Museum records include objects which are acquired by the museum to form specific collections. Objects within these collections may be donated or purchased. They may also be compiled by a source external to the Museum. As a collection these objects often represent the work of a particular person or company, such as the Hedda Morrison Photographic Collection or The Tooths & Co Brewery Collection. Other collections are the result of the personal collecting of a donor, such as the Cavill Silverware Collection, a donation from Professor Kenneth Cavill of his collection of early 20th century Australian Silverware.
