– notes, frequently asked questions and useful links from the archivist and curator of manuscripts at Balliol College, University of Oxford. Opinions expressed are the author's own.


This blog, started in Michaelmas Term (October) 2010 by Anna Sander, college archivist and curator of manuscripts, houses a collection of useful links and unrelated trivia about the history, archives and past members of Balliol College, Oxford.  It was intended as a place to put handy things I come across, quickly, while I think of them. Do not expect coherence here! but I hope comprehensive tagging will help to pull related threads together for you. Further information in a more organised form can be found on Balliol’s Archives & Manuscripts website at http://archives.balliol.ox.ac.uk.

    Hello! A friend of mine has just posted a blog about a guidebook for wounded soldiers in Oxford during ww1. http://adrianbarlowsblog.blogspot.co.uk/2015/07/help-for-heroes-handy-guide-to-oxford.html My mother, Clare Eaglestone, worked in Balliol looking after the ‘old members’ and Record in the 80s and early 90s, and hanging in, or next to, her office in the Masters Lodging was a lovely picture of wounded officers convalescing in Balliol during the war. I remember it well from visiting my mother on my way home from school! I’d love to send a picture of this to my friend – I was wondering, do you have a copy of it online, or might you be able to post a copy? A total favour, I know, and I’m sure your very busy – but it is so apposite!
