The Act, No 94 of 1966, to establish and incorporate The Western Australian Institute of Technology and for incidental and other purposes, was assented to on the 12th December 1966.
Prior to the development of online legislation, paper copies of legislation were annotated by cutting and pasting amendments. the Library’s copy of the Act includes cut and paste, and handwritten annotation. The Act is bound in a black binder which includes original copies of subsequent amendment acts and the Western Australian Institute of Technology Statute 1 Common Seal.
