Exeter College: The First 700 Years Summary

Exeter College: The First 700 Years by Frances Cairncross

To mark 700 years since its foundation, Exeter College, Oxford has collaborated with Third Millennium, specialist publishers of books about great institutions, to publish Exeter College: The First 700 Years. The past seven centuries have been brought to life with historical insight, personal reminiscences, and a large collection of beautiful photographs and illustrations. This is a handsome volume, which has been created with the help of the alumni through their written and photographic contributions. Bringing to life the College's foundation and evolution, via political and religious upheavals to world wars and the arrival of female students, the book will most of all reflect the College that you knew and - we hope - hold dear to this day.
