Overview

Overview

Reissue of classic college history covering period of great changes in society and in university affairs.
This history, originally published on the occasion of the Sexcentenary of the College in 1952, carries on the story first told by Masters (1753) and Lamb (1831), and brings it down to the mid-twentieth century, Mastership by Mastership. It deals with a period of great changes during which a Whig Society turned Tory, flourished as a stronghold of Evangelicalism, and was for a time the third largest College in the University. The book goes on to describe the decline which set in at the end of the nineteenth century, the break with the Low Church tradition, and the Renaissance which began under new leadership shortly before the First World War and continued after it. It says something of the effect upon the College of the great University reforms of the period, and it attempts to give some picture of social conditions, and the way of life of the ordinary undergraduate. The volume also includes lives of all the Fellows active in the College between 1822 and 1952, notes on College livings, an account of the holders of College offices, and an alphabetical list of all members of the College admitted between 1822 and 1950.
