mathematical models
The University of Dundee holds an archive of mathematical models from 3 generations of professors: Thomas Claxton Fidler (1841-1917), John Steggall (1855-1935) and William Peddie (1861-1946), all who had connections with Patrick Geddes and D'Arcy Wentowrth Thomson, the author of On Growth and Form, thus indirectly influencing architects and engineers around the world.

With many thanks to Matthew Jarron, Archivist, University of Dundee.

drawing instruments
The University of Dundee also holds an archive of drawing instruments. Thomas Deckker believes that it would be beneficial to reconnect students with drawing as a manual process.
