Papers of Timothy Card, 1988-1999



Administrative / Biographical history

Although elected a King's Scholar in 1944, he gave by and entered Richard Martineau's house as an Oppidan, leaving in 1950. He returned to Eton as an assistant master in 1955. From 1969 - 1984 he was also a house master. He was elected Vice-Provost in 1988 and retired in 1999. His two books on Eton's history, Eton Renewed, covering the period since the Public Schools Act of 1868, and Eton Established, covering the period from the foundation, were written in retirement. He was a generous benefactor to the College and also to its staff, who received gifts of fruit from his magnificent Dorset garden when he visited the College.
