Ascham Society papers
The society for masters named after Roger Ascham, the teacher of Lady Jane Grey, was started in November 1867. At each meeting, a master delivers a paper which is then discussed. The objects were to discuss the theory and practice of education with a view to improving existing methods and also the discussion of literary and scientific subjects with a view to self culture.
1867 - 2004
These include many papers of great interest to the historian of both Eton and education, as papers - especially in the earlier years - covered subjects such as the role of classics, chapel services and appropriate forms of punishment.
Additional items, including a pamphlet celebrating the 200th meeting on 3 June 1901 can be found in the Benson collection (Llb.4.10, 4.11, 4.42). Another copy of the pamphlet is in the Bodleain Library, with a list of those present. Wilfrid Blunt's papers also contain relevant material.
