Olive Gibbs in 1965 on being appointed Sheriff of Oxford.

An exhibition to celebrate the centenary of the birth of Olive Gibbs, one of the most prominent and well-loved figures in 20th-century Oxford. Olive was a local Labour politician who was instrumental in preventing an inner relief road being built across Christ Church Meadow, in the demolition of the Cutteslowe walls, and in saving Jericho from slum clearance. She was also a very active peace campaigner and was one of the founding members of CND and its national chair in the mid-1960s. The exhibition is free and open during normal library opening hours. The exhibition will move to the nearby Templars Square shopping centre from 23rd June to 1st July.
