Book description

A History of St Catharine's College, Cambridge, by W. H. S. Jones, was originally published in 1936. The book documents the history of the college, which was founded in 1473 by Robert Woodlark, then the Provost of King's College. It is thought the name was chosen in honour of Catharine of France, the mother of King Henry VI, although it is also possible that it was named as part of the Renaissance cult of St Catharine, a patron saint of learning. The book charts the history of the college from the foundation to the 1930s, and is divided into chapters on topics including domestic history, key figures, and a section on documents, including statutes, income, authorities and correspondence. The book is generally acknowledged to be the authoritative text on St Catharine's College and will appeal to anyone interested in the University of Cambridge.
