75th anniversary of the UCL Institute of Archaeology in 2012. From the picture source website:

Thanks to his {Mortimer Wheeler's} efforts and those of his wife, Tessa Verney Wheeler, his ambitions were realised when the Institute was officially opened in 1937, with Mortimer Wheeler as its first director." Professor of Western Asiatic Archaeology was Max Mallowan. "Initially the Institute was based in St John’s Lodge, Regent’s Park {which lovely gardens are now public}, but in 1958 it moved into purpose-built new premises in Gordon Square."
