O.R.C. - Oswald Rose Campbell (1820 - 1887)

Campbell was an artist  born in the Channel Islands, arrived in Melbourne in October 1852. He then moved to Sydney for brief period and returned to Melbourne in 1864. On Thomas Clark's retirement, Campbell applied again for appointment as drawing-master at the School of Design, claiming that for the past twelve years he had been drawing on wood, chiefly figures for the illustrated papers. He was appointed on 1 December 1876 at a salary of £250.
