She deserves a mention even though she was a Sheffield artist and entrepreneur.


Annie Bindon Carter transformed the lives of ex-servicemen returning from the trenches of the First World War with horrific injuries, by employing them to decorate fabrics and to help build a successful business, giving them back their self-esteem, and putting them into full paid employment.[/font][/size]
She also aided the intellectual development of the students of our University by donating the sum of £1,000 to the Library, specifically for the purchase of beautiful artistsí books to inspire and engage interest outside of the curriculum.[/font][/size]
On display are costumes, fabrics and designs from the company, alongside examples of the private press books bought from that donation.[/font][/size]
