This series is comprised of various legal documents compiled by the Education Department regarding the Byrnes Memorial Medal:

- The original "Declaration of Trust" establishing the creation of... "The Byrnes Memorial Gold Medal to be awarded to the most successful Queensland student male or female at the annual Sydney University Junior Examination until the establishment of a Queensland University when the fund should be devoted to a similar object in connection with such Queensland University". The Honourable Andrew Joseph Thynne, Alexander Muir, Solicitor, and Antony James Joseph St Ledger, Barrister, were appointed Trustees of the said fund. The fund of 150 pounds was the amount left over after the erection of a bronze statue in honour of the late Honourable Thomas Joseph Byrnes, Premier of Queensland.
