Bodleian archive

Historic Club records are held at the Department of Special Collections and Western Manuscripts, Bodleian Library, Oxford. The catalogue currently records the contents of the first deposition in 2002. A second deposition of papers in 2013 awaits cataloguing. The concert programmes from the latter deposition were scanned and can be viewed in the concert archive.

An exhibition of memorabilia from the Bodleian collection was held at No 6 Bedford Square (now New York University London Campus) in May 2014 and celebrated with a joint concert. It was followed by a Centenary Concert in December 2014 which repeated the first concert performed at the Bedford Square premises, exactly 100 years previously. We are grateful to Louisa Bahet of NYU for the photographs below. Click on the images to expand them.
