Description

The Public Record Office of Northern Ireland (PRONI) invites you to the inaugural D.A. Chart Seminar on Maps on Wednesday 26 June.

This annual seminar is named in honour of Dr D.A. Chart.  David Alfred Chart was the founder and first Deputy Keeper of the Public Record Office of Northern Ireland.
Born to an army family in India, Chart studied Classics in Queen’s College Cork (now UCC) and spent his early career at the Public Record Office of Ireland (PROI) at the Four Courts in Dublin.
In April 1922, Chart transferred to the new administration in Belfast. Double-jobbing as a civil servant in the new Ministry of Finance and part-time archivist, he laid the groundwork for what became PRONI. 
Serving until 1948 he expanded PRONI’s archives by encouraging the donation of many important collections of landed-estate records, including maps and plans – and encouraged links with map libraries across Britain and Ireland.
This event is free.
