  • JCCA/JCHR/1/11
  • File
  • 1900-2004 (These covering dates are those of the information included.)
  • Part of College Archives

The original intention was to lay out the list in two columns, one for 1900-1960 and one for 1961 onwards. A pencil note at the head of the first page suggests they may have been altered to cover 1920-1980 and 1981-2004, but it seems that entries were not consistently added as late as 2004. A note on the titlle page states that the list excludes "those known to have died before this list was begun or during its compilation." There is also a list of abbreviations, and an indication that women's names are written in red. Where deaths are noted, the relevant entries have been crossed through.
