Society Day and AGM

The annual Society Day will take place in College in November, and we will be hearing fascinating talks with a War theme, to commemorate 100 years since the end of the First World War.

Amanda Goode, the College archivist, will introduce the day with a history of the College throughout the war, and the President of the Society, Andrew Fane, will speak about his grandfather’s service in WWI and the German soldier who saved his life. Jamie Finlay will then talk about his uncle Douglas Finlay (Emma 1940), and his experiences in the Second World War as a Prisoner of War and on the Long March of 1945.

After a buffet lunch in the Old Library, we will be back in the Lecture Theatre for a talk by Dr Larry Klein, about the incredible discovery of an eighteenth-century newsprint found within the Chapel chandelier during its restoration.

The day will finish with afternoon tea in the Old Library; there will be the Society AGM from 10am, to which you are also very welcome. There will also be a display of the College’s war archives in the Douglas Finlay Museum of College Life, and you are very welcome to tour the College throughout the day.
