College Archives

About the Archive

The Archive stores, preserves, and provides access to records that document the history of the College.  The records of the first nine Masters of St Edmund’s House [EDAR 1/0 – 1/9] form the core archive of the first eighty years of the College’s history. The Archive also contains minutes of its governing bodies, records of early clubs and societies, College publications, photographs from the earliest days of the College, and some personal papers of a number of St Edmund’s members. Some records acquired from external sources predate the date of the foundation of St Edmund’s.

The Archive’s full catalogue can be found here.
