Bursars' correspondence and papers



Administrative / Biographical history

This series was taken from boxes marked 'from the black sacks in the Bursary'. They were possibly considered still semi-current and therefore not seen by Noel Blakiston when he sorted uncatalogued archives roughly by decade.


1832 - 1956

Extent & medium

37 boxes

Content description

Most concern internal Eton matters although there are some papers on agricultural estates. Subjects include air-raid precautions, the collections, College Chapel organ (including 19th century correspondence), drainage, examinations,houses - with bundles on individual houses as well as more general material, Lower Chapel, salaries, the Millington-Drake gift, prizes, the Provost's Lodge, the Sanatorium, school buildings, town planning and war damage.
