Clare Through the Twentieth Century
Available in Stock
Clare is one of the smaller Cambridge colleges, cherished for its friendliness by alumni such as David Attenborough, who provides the foreword to this book. Its lavishly illustrated pages celebrate Clare’s long history, graceful architecture and rich library. They also chart its response to the challenges of the 20th century – it was one of the first Cambridge colleges to admit women, and an increasing proportion of students from state schools. An accompanying CD features musical reflections by college members.
