Welcome to the Brunel University Archives Advent Calendar.
Each day we will be revealing a new item from our archive collections to get everyone in the festive spirit.
With the Rugby World Cup starting at the weekend and Brunel University London having hosted the Webb-Ellis Trophy and the French Squad in preparation for their game against Italy, we thought it might be interesting to look back at the University’s contributions to the sport.
Supporter of women’s suffrage and co-founded “Men’s League for Women’s Suffrage”.
Writer, political activist and first female sociologist who championed women’s rights.
The Archives hold a letter to the BFSS from Elizabeth Fry's daughter Katherine regarding educating females in India.
The Archives News will provide an insight into the wonderful collections that we look after, and the work involved in managing them.
Following on from our previous news item about the 1897 British Schools list, we thought it would be interesting to tell you about the British School Museum in Hitchin, whose 1837 Monitorial Schoolroom is the only one of its kind left in the world.
Brunel University London Archives are pleased to announce that a fully searchable transcript of the 1897 list of British Schools is now available online.
