Overview

Archives of the University of Cambridge: An Historical Introduction by Heather E. Peek, Catherine P. Hall

Published in 1962, this account of the University Archives at Cambridge will be of particular importance to those interested in the history of the University. The first part describes the growth of the archives from their beginnings in the thirteenth century and the changes of fortune they have undergone during that time. Part two provides a survey of the archives, placing the main groups in the context of the University. The authors show how the more important classes of archives developed and the places they occupied in the workings of the administration. There are three appendices: a brief summary of the classes mentioned and the dates they cover; a list of muniments of title to landed property; and a bibliography listing published works which have contained or incorporated records from the Archive. There are sixteen illustrations from the Archives themselves.
