John Dryden playing croquet on Grove lawn in the 1960s, and a recreation of the photo from the 50 year reunion of 1965 matriculands.

It was the college’s 700th Anniversary while I was here (1964). The Septencentenary Fund mainly raised funds for the Rose Lane buildings; I was surprised to find that I actually contributed to it, as I was always broke! Story gathered and…

These photos were taken at the 2014 50 Years On reunion at College. Pictured in the first five pictures are (left to right): Bruce Jerritt; Paul Mahoney John Borgars; Mike Robson Mike Stepan (background standing); David Ireland (centre table);…

We all used to sit in the Law Library, round a big table, and it wasn’t so much a place to work, more a place to chat and gossip. We had this big hard back journal that sat in the Law Library called the Halsbury Book, and the lawyers used to…
