ANNUAL MEETING OF THE ASSOCIATION OF SENIOR MEMBERS

T

HE forty-first Annual Meeting of the Association of Senior Members was held in the Mordan Hall on Saturday, 2 July 1966, at 3 p.m., the Principal in the Chair. One hundred and ninety-five members were present. The Principal called on the meeting to stand in memory of nine members who had died during the year; and of two members who had died since 1964. In her statement the Principal said that Lady Wolfson and the Rt. Hon. Mrs. Barbara Castle had been elected to Honorary Fellowships of the College. She reported the various changes in the S.C.R. There was an impressive list of Honours for Senior Members, some of which the Principal said she was reserving for announcement at the Gaudy dinner. She also listed the Post-Graduate and Undergraduate College Awards and Prizes, and among the University awards made special reference to the Turner and Newall Research Fellowship, which was established in 596o and is open to candidates doing research in Physics, Inorganic Chemistry, and Engineering. It has been awarded twice before and Mrs. Green (J. C. Bilham), a former Nuffield Scholar of the College, is the first woman to be awarded it. The Chairman spoke of the New Building which was now in occupation. It had been opened by Miss Veronica Wedgwood on 59 May. By 3o June 1966 the Appeal had reached ÂŁ76,059. 2S. 9d. The Wolfson Building, i.e. Stage 2, was now going up and it was hoped that it could be occupied in October 1967. In her report on the Appeal, the Principal thanked the Appeal Committee for its work and our Appeal Secretaries overseas: for the U.S.A. Mrs. Ilse Kagan, and for Canada, Miss Alison Rashleigh and Professor Mary White. The Principal referred to the enthusiasm with which the Stage r Building had been greeted by the undergraduates, and then spoke of the expansion of numbers and some of the problems involved. A very successful Dinner had been given in the Hilary Term to celebrate the opening of the 1916 building. Members of the College who were the first residents in the 1916 building were invited to attend. The College had received a gift of a painting of Oxford viewed from the roof of the Sheldonian. The Constitution of the Association was formally presented to the meeting. Elections

It was a contested election for the Presidency of the Association between Miss Joan Sargeaunt and Miss P. Hartnoll. Miss Joan Sargeaunt was elected President by 69 votes to 64. Mrs. C. F. Hemming was elected Secretary and Miss Lemon Editor of the Chronicle. The following eight members of the Committee were elected: Miss I. Sims, Miss S. F. Stallman, Mrs. D. N. L'Estrange-Malone, Mrs. Phillis M. Trotman, Miss P. M. Hartnoll, Mrs. Joan Pusey, Mrs. Audrey I. Carlisle, Mrs. M. Green. The motion that Mrs. Betty Jay be elected an associate member of the Association under By-law XIV, I (viii), proposed by Miss Gertrude Thorneycroft, seconded by Miss P. Wells, was carried nem. con. Any other business

The Lucy Cavendish College in Cambridge had asked for a list of Senior Members living in or near Cambridge. Miss Lemon proposed, and Dame

7


Elsie Abbot seconded a motion that this list should be sent to the College. Carried nem. con. Miss Lemon expressed the thanks of the Association to Miss Jacobs for her work as Secretary: and Miss Jacobs thanked Miss Beere for all her support and help during her years of office.

PRESENTATION TO MISS JACOBS HEN Miss Jacobs retired from the Hon. Secretaryship of the Association of Senior Members in July 1966 she had served in this capacity for ten years. It is felt that Senior Members would like to show their appreciation of her long service by contributing towards a gift of books (in the form of a book token), to be presented to her at the next Annual General Meeting in June 1967. Any donations, not exceeding los., should be sent to the Hon. Secretary, St. Hugh's College, before 17 June.

W

SHERRY PARTY 1967 SHERRY Party for members of the Association will be held on Friday, September 1967, 5.3o-7.3o p.m., at Queen Elizabeth College, Campden A Hill Road, by kind permission of the Principal, Dr. K. G. Denbigh, F.R.S. 29

Full particulars will be found on a slip enclosed with the Chronicle.

ST. HUGH'S GAUDY, 1966

B

ETWEEN 1 and 4 July this year there was another assemblage at St. Hugh's for a college gaudy; the assembling began on Friday evening and gained some formal shape for the A.G.M. on Saturday afternoon, whose proceedings, steered most expeditiously from the dais of the Mordan Hall, passed in a flurry of pink voting slips. No doubt the results are reported elsewhere in the Chronicle with greater accuracy than is likely here. After that it was tea on the lawn and ample scope for reminiscence and rock cakes, on all of which the sun shone. The gardens were looking lovely, much better without the huts with their animal population and itinerant statisticians, which is how one generation at St. Hugh's best remembers them. What huts now obtrude are contractor's shacks, the parasites of the new building. In a gaudy which in other respects must have run on much the same lines as its many predecessors, the inspection and, for some, habitation of the new building was 1966's special feature. On entering, the very first aspect is most imposing, with a staircase worthy of Lucia di Lammermoor and pillars worthy of Samson. Since neither appeared that weekend, it was left to the rest of us, philistines included, to wander around, seeing how much better undergraduates are having it these days—though this was not universally conceded, for the new building and its internal effects are not without their controversial points. But each room has a magnificent view over the gardens, a plethora of flat surfaces of coffee height, and a bed which is far less uncompromising (certainly to outward view) than those in the older buildings. Meanwhile, the old buildings were welcoming in their familiar unchangedness ; the lavatory doors still bang thunderously, especially at night.


There is no doubt that the Saturday evening dinner was the most gaudy part of the celebrations. As one after-dinner speaker commented, we were perhaps not the best dressed bunch of women she had encountered, but we had all made an effort. There we all were, ranged along alphabetically ordered tables, down to an F generation and beyond, with the overflow accommodated in the buttery—another new institution opposite the Bursar's office—which did a brisk trade after dinner and at other snack times, and deserves to be quite as busy during term. Since dinner was the highlight of the occasion, that was the time of maximum concentration of senior members, a fact that was already quite evident from the noise generated; this also did not escape comment from the platform. But in this St. Hugh's has no monopoly: a recent reunion at Sunset High School, Dallas, Texas, was summed up `It's the same gang, only louder'. Our repleteness was settled nicely by a lively and varied succession of speeches from high table. Miss E. D. McLeod, describing herself as a 'been to', a phrase she adapted from an Indian whose proudest claim was that he had 'been to' Oxford (further inquiries not encouraged), showed us what giddy heights can be reached from this beginning if combined with other undocumented talents. Many another of us knows, in humbler spheres, the multifarious advantages of been-to-ness. Miss M. L. Sims regaled us with glimpses of behind-the-scenes of 'Woman's Hour' and read some letters she and the programme received which had not otherwise been given an airing, besides producing the pertinent and endearing comments mentioned before. From the recent past to the more distant past, which was conjured up by Miss F. M. Wyld with stories of Oxford life at the turn of the century, something which quite evidently set one up with enough mental liveliness to last well into the 196os. The Principal in her speech dealt with the highlights of the year's successes, the plums which she had kept back from her report at the afternoon's meeting. On Sunday a surprise item was arranged, apparently at short notice, in aid of the building fund. It is a pity that comparatively few of us had survived as long as Sunday afternoon to swell both the audience and the fund. A notice modestly displayed at the door of the Mordan Hall states that it is now licensed in pursuance of Act of Parliament for public music, singing, dancing, or other public entertainment of like kind. Our entertainment of like kind that afternoon was the unexpected pleasure of a poetry reading by Phyllis Hartnoll which ranged from John Donne to some of her own poems. This was balanced after tea by a short concert of flute and piano music: the programme, played both efficiently and musically by Pippa Burrow and Judith Rickett, was very aptly chosen and presented for such an occasion, no mean feat in itself. There were also opportunities during the weekend to escape from the mêlée, to swelter in Oxford's summer sultriness and to wait for Oxford's non-existent Sunday buses. It seemed a chance to look up an old landlady, but only to be greeted by roses overblown, grass overgrown, and spiders' webs enhancing the air of neglect. No, said the young neighbours lazing next door with their transistor, they hadn't seen anyone in that house for months. Turning away it was good to reflect that landladies may go but St. Hugh's goes on and will welcome more generations of senior members to future gaudies. ANON. 9


At the Gaudy Dinner, E. M. McLeod (1915) proposed the toast of the Association in a most amusing speech which skimmed lightly, and chronologically from her schooldays to the present and ended by stating that her time as the Head of the French Section of the British Council were five of the happiest years of her life which came 'all because I had been to Oxford'. In replying M. L. Sims (1943) talked about the B.B.C. 'Woman's Hour', of which she is editor, and particularly mentioned the 'incredible noise' which is such a part of every Gaudy. In proposing the Toast of the College, Miss F. M. Wyld (1898) talked of the early days of the College: I think that there is some sort of anomaly that I have been asked to propose the toast to the College, because, I think, in all this distinguished assembly, I must be the only one who has not got a degree. It's not my fault: when I was up, the University considered women as a very inferior race altogether. We were not fit to be members of the University, which was very sad, and I still regret it. But as my only qualification seems to be that I am a veteran—though it is not usually a very good qualification—it may interest you if I can bring back something of St. Hugh's as it was in those very early days, for there are so very few of us now who can remember. But I shall have to go a long way back. I have to take you back to the days of Queen Victoria; the days before the South African War started; even before this century—I feel like somebody from before the days of the Ark! We were in a house in Norham Gardens: an ordinary house with a wing built on, but a very good wing; and they were very good rooms. It had a lower level where you went into the Chapel. We were not allowed to go to Chapel without our hats on, and as we had morning prayers just before breakfast, we must have had our hats on at breakfast! We were a very small company: we were only twenty-four all told; in my year there were only eight of us. The conditions then were what you would now think of as rather primitive: we had no electricity—only oil lamps. We had our own coal fires which the staff had to make; and, oh, it was such a wonderful staff: there was Kate who was dark, and Ellen who was fair; they did all the housework; they cleared our cocoa-trays; they made the fires; they did it all; and they were always jolly—never bad-tempered. We did not know very much about the other Colleges and Halls. After all, distance meant more at that time. As far as the other women's Colleges went, Somerville was very senior, and, with all deference to our Principal, we thought Somerville students a little . . . ahem . . . daring sometimes. Those things were not done at L.M.H. and St. Hugh's. Then, L.M.H. was nearer; they had a lot of money and were rather spoilt. Somerville and L.M.H. looked on us as a poor relation, and we did not like that at all, no, no, not at all! For some years we had an inferiority complex; we could not be sure of getting University honours in anything except games. When I first came up, we were nothing at all in games. I remember going to see Miss Notley at L.M.H. to talk about hockey—she was rather alarming, but, strange to say, she did not snub me at all! She said: 'But St. Hugh's has never had a club!' I played in nearly all the matches in the University, but I never got my blue because the place in which I might have got a blue was held by somebody from Somerville. I hoped that she would go down, but she didn't. I got a blue for tennis though; and I think we managed to put ourselves on the map. We knew very little about St. Hilda's and we didn't like them very much—they didn't like us I0


either; but I am talking about a very long time ago; these are the ideas we had years ago. The Principal was Miss Moberly and the Vice-Principal was Miss Venables; there was no teaching staff; those two ran the College, and it was a most wonderful pioneering job. Miss Wordsworth was at L.M.H. at that time; I saw her only once and was terrified! Miss Moberly was an outstanding personality and a great scholar—I realized this more after I had left Oxford. She was a great theological scholar; a great musician; and a great character. I don't think she understood much about games—they didn't in those days! I don't suppose she had ever ordered a meal in her life before she came to St. Hugh's. She gave us something of a tradition, and a sense of values. She used to say: `If there is anything right to do, you must do it, and never deviate.' In years to come, when I was in India doing a pioneering job myself, that background helped me very much. The University Authorities gave us a very bad time; women had no say in University matters; there were many women of the right calibre, but they had no opportunity of putting their views forward. The male University dons were very sympathetic, and we depended on them for our tuition. because we had no dons of our own. I remember Mr. Armstrong of Queen's who was my tutor in political economy. Another was Mr. Marriott of Worcester; before going to him I was warned that he had very bad manners; did I mind? I said: 'Oh, no, no!' We used to go to his tutorials in pairs, and he would sit in his armchair with his feet on the mantelpiece right through the tutorial; but, for all that, he was a good coach. Another tutor, Mr. A. L. Smith--I think he later became Master of Balliol—had a really homely study; it was so untidy that there was never anywhere to sit. 'Throw those books and papers on the floor', he would say; which we did, and they joined the general chaos all over the floor. There would be a knock on the door and in would come some young men: 'Can we find the tennis balls ?' A few minutes later, Mrs. A. L. Smith would come in saying that she could not find her knitting anywhere; we would all search for her knitting, and she would go away, and we would go on with the tutorial; and, again, he was a most inspiring tutor. We depended entirely on the men's colleges for lectures. We had to walk up those long halls to high table, because it would not be nice to sit in the body of the hall with all those men! Once, I went to a lecture at Balliol, and a little old lady in a black skirt and black bonnet, came up to me and said: 'You are the only woman student at this lecture, so I shall come in with you.' You know, there was such a lot of poverty amongst elderly women at that time; they were glad to earn the eighteen pence chaperon fee. I wanted the ground to open up and swallow me, but it didn't, and she came in with me and sat on the platform knitting quite happily through the lecture. I thought: 'Never again!' After the lecture, she told me that she would come to all the lectures with me. I said that sometimes we had too much work to do to go to all the lectures, but she gave me her name and address, and I said that I would send her a post-card. For the rest of that term, I sent her a post-card three times a week saying that I could not go to the Balliol lecture. But I still owe St. Hugh's about thirty shillings for those chaperon fees. I haven't got it with me at the moment—I'll pay it tomorrow! Money was very short in those days. The total I paid for fees was £80, which covered everything—living expenses, tuition, everything. My godmother had left me a little money, which was fortunate as my brothers had all the money II


that was going in the family. All my expenses at Oxford—books, note-books, all my clothes, tennis racquet—you had to have a good tennis racquet, even if your clothes went short—came out of this allowance. On one occasion, I had no money for my railway fare home. I sent my luggage by Pickford's, and I rode home on my bicycle—eighty miles! I had to ride over Salisbury Plain; there were no proper roads; just dust tracks; there were no indications showing which track to take, and you did not meet anybody for miles and miles. However, it is interesting to remember that a single girl could do it and feel perfectly safe; nowadays, a girl could not do it—so what of our modern civilization? There were no cars; we went everywhere on our bicycles; if they wanted mending, or needed new nuts and bolts, we went to a little shop run by a young man with stubbly hair which stood straight up. He did our small repairs for us . . . and his name was William Morris! When you think, years afterwards, of that young man who later became Lord Nuffield, starting in that small way, mending our bicycles, it truly was an era of pioneers. There was one thing that was typical: when we came down from Oxford, there was so little opportunity for us; there was only teaching or nursing. When I put in for a teaching post, the highest pay I could get was 48o a year; I thought I should not have enough to live on, and I didn't know what to do. I decided to throw my bonnet over the windmill, and go to a Physical Training College and specialize on the medical side; I planned to start a clinic of my own. I did go to the training college, but I didn't start a clinic. The first job that I took was at a school in Yorkshire. When the Head found that I had been to Oxford and had read history, she immediately got rid of one of her staff, and gave me both jobs! So I had to do all the history and all the physical training and games. It was a very long day's work; I started at 7.3o a.m., and carried on until late every night. That is how things were; it is all so different nowadays. However, we came through. To finish, there is one suggestion that I wish to leave with this very distinguished assembly: When the present younger generation looks upon me and those of my day who had a difficult time, they say: 'But you managed to get through, and you conquered all the difficulties.' At present, everything appears to be nice and tidy; but, you know, it isn't so; there is still such a lot of pioneer work to be done. We did make a beginning; we were able to go to University; we worked in the First World War. I joined Mrs. Pankhurst's campaign, but I didn't go to Holloway, which was a good thing or I should have lost my post on the staff of St. Paul's Girls' School! If you look at the way this country is run, you can see that most of the top responsible jobs are held by men. Surely it is time that we established the position, that where there is a top job to be filled, the person should be appointed to it who is the best person man or woman. It should be a natural thing; they should not even think whether it is a man or a woman, but regard it as a natural consequence. That position has not yet been achieved. When Mrs. Pandit retired from being the High Commissioner for India, she was interviewed and asked how Indian women had managed to get to the top. She said: 'In England, women began to come out a long time ago in the fight for equality, but when they got it, you did not give them any responsible positions at all.' It seems to me that we want to appeal to the younger and the middle generations to carry on the pioneer work that the older people started. There is such a lot of work for us to do in that way. And now, may I give the toast to the members of St. Hugh's—of all generations! —

The Principal's Reply to the Toast to the College I am delighted to reply to the toast to St. Hugh's College. Obviously, when

following on in a series of speeches, one has to follow on the remarks of those who have spoken before; and my first follow-on is that I have taken a very good resolution: It is that at a very early stage, I am going to invite Miss Wyld to come to the College and speak to the undergraduates of today. The undergraduates of today are a first-class and an interesting lot; but their way is made comparatively easy, and they could benefit, I think, a great deal from these descriptions of what happened in the past. I hope that those few members of the present J.C.R. who have been giving their services tonight are, perhaps, still here, and will tell their fellows what a very interesting talk we have had from Miss Wyld. She goes much further back than my time; but I would like to link up what she has said in another way. Our break through in equality was in games. In my day at Somerville, St. Hugh's was our very particular rival in games. I think I am right in saying that I played in all the Cup Finals, and, in all but one of them, we beat St. Hugh's; but they were our rivals in every one of them, and, therefore, at that stage, they were in the top rank as far as University games were concerned. This leads me on to the remark from Miss McLeod: Why did one come to Oxford? The reason why I came to Oxford was because I had got into the school Hockey Eleven, and I decided that, if I wanted to go on playing hockey for ever, the only way to do it was to come to Oxford! Then, we have had from Miss Sims this interesting revelation on the position of women in the broadcasting world: their advantages and their drawbacks; and, in that connexion, I can only say that I loath all forms of broadcasting! I remember, I was thoroughly put in my place on one occasion, when a letter was passed on to me from somebody who said that they could not abide the Oxford accent, and asked why people could not learn to speak good English in the way our dear King George the Sixth had spoken it. That made me feel more depressed about broadcasting than ever before. Miss Wyld has talked about the old days at St. Hugh's; I want to talk about today. At the last Gaudy, you were all put in the picture about what was happening two years ago; and, I am sure, you can see that a lot has happened since then; most of it is visible to you. Those of you whom the Bursar has specially favoured are in rooms in the New Building; I hope that you like them as much as the undergraduates do. Although, compared with the new rooms in the men's colleges, they are not, perhaps, quite so good; they are, at least, very much better than rooms built on U.G.C. standards. The planning of the corridors is much better than in the original buildings, though the rooms are smaller; but they are very attractive rooms, and we are really proud of them. At the last Gaudy, all that you saw was a framework of the New Building—it may have been only a hole in the ground—I cannot quite remember. It has now been completed and occupied for some months, but we can still refer to it as the New Building, in capitals. There was some debate over what we should call it; in the end we decided to call it the New Building, in capitals, because it was the first stage in the real expansion of St. Hugh's. It is true that in 1916, undergraduates regarded this as the new building, and it has expanded since then; but this is the first big break away. I have had a good idea—I thought of this only this evening—we should have called it the Sixtysix Building. Six has been a very significant number in College buildings: 1886 is the foundation date; 1916 is the date of the present main building; 1936 is 13


the date of the Mary Gray Allen Wing; in 1956 there was further expansion; and in 1966 we opened the New Building. I am afraid that we are going to fall out of step with the date of the next stage, for we cannot put off the Wolfson Building until 1976! At first, it looked as if there might have been financial grounds for delaying it; then we decided against postponing the next stage until we received the final instalments of the generous gift from the Wolfson Trust; and I think, now, that we were very wise, because the large sum of money might have been swallowed up in the new Wolfson College! We were right to go ahead, even if we do get out of step with the number six. Our first achievement since the last Gaudy was the Buttery which has been a very great success—I do hope that those who are occupying it at the present moment can hear us. We had to have it because, with our large increase in the number of undergraduates, the only alternative would have been to extend back through the serving hatches. Instead of providing for everybody in a larger dining-hall, we have built the Buttery for informal meals, and it has proved an extremely popular innovation: one in which we can say that we have led the way.

The third new item, though, perhaps, you have not seen it, because it is not so visible: somewhere behind the scenes, St. Hugh's has its first chef. Last year, it was decided that we should enjoy professional caterers ; they were here for two terms, then we parted company. I am sure you will all agree that our own chef is a very great success. (Applause.) So far, I have talked about the College; now I must talk about some of the members of the College. In the first place, I am sure you will be pleased to know that we have taken a running start this year by achieving two Firsts in Mathematics. Only a few results have come out (including Music and Zoology), but they have all got Seconds; none at all below a Second. It would be nice to think that we were going to maintain this high standard. I would also like to mention the Craven Scholarship—I must emphasize that it is a very unusual award for a woman to win—it was won this year by one of our undergraduates, Miss Julia Annas. I said at the Meeting this afternoon that I was going to reserve some of the senior honours for my talk tonight. The first one I want to mention is our Honorary Fellow, Dame Margery Perham, who is now in the habit of receiving perennial honours! Last year, she was made D.C.M.G. ; this year, she has been made an Hon. D.Litt. at Cambridge. I well remember the first occasion I encountered Margery Perham: it was on the tennis court—the one now destroyed by the New Building: it was in the interCollege knock-out competition in which the competitors could be either senior and junior members, and we were told that Miss Perham would not be awfully pleased if we beat them. We did beat them . . . and she was not awfully pleased! In spite of that, my friendship with Margery Perham has been very long-standing, and she has all my congratulations. We have another distinguished person here tonight: Dame Elsie Abbot— not many Colleges have two Dames! We are so pleased that Dame Elsie has now joined Dame Margery. My next congratulations go to Miss Winifred Laws who has been appointed head mistress of Milham Ford School. It is an appointment in which I am closely concerned as I am now a Governor of Milham Ford School; however, I was not present when the appointment was made so there was no nepotism in the matter. I am delighted that St. Hugh's has this connexion with the school because it is one of the very good schools in Oxford. They are going to 14


have a very hard road to plough in the question of comprehensive schools, and there will be a fight against engulfing this very good school in the comprehensive school system. We wish Miss Laws the very best of luck. Finally, I come to Dr. Mary Cartwright, who, just a week ago, was given an Honorary D.Sc. at the Encaenia. I have been looking up the records, and I have discovered that this was a very special honour, for it is not often that Oxford honours a woman at Encaenia; very few of them have been academic women, and, it appears that only one of them was an Oxford academic woman. Therefore, the fact that Miss Cartwright has been successful shows that it was not considered that she has been corrupted by being Head of a House in Cambridge. Nowadays, even female Honorands get invited to the dinner at Christ Church, and, as a consequence, there was no opportunity of entertaining Miss Cartwright to dinner here and celebrating her success. I have had to inflict all this on her at the Gaudy because we did not have a special dinner in her honour. At Christ Church she had to represent both the women Honorands—Dame Sybil Thorndike had gone back to London to do the evening performance of Arsenic and Old Lace! Dame Sybil is a very distinguished woman, and we all admire her;. but she had eighteen years start on Miss Cartwright, so it is all the more gratifying to us that Oxford has honoured her in this way. So: Miss Cartwright: Congratulations. (Applause.) Just a final word: one which links our Honorand with those of the present day. I don't think Miss Cartwright knows that the Bursar made a very special selection when she gave her a room in the New Building. She is in the Arabella Wardley room, so-called because Mrs. Wardley gave a very generous donation in memory of her daughter. Miss Cartwright will be interested to know that the present J.C.R. occupant of that room is the first woman to hold an office in the Union; in Hilary Term she was the Secretary of the Union ; in Trinity Term she was the Treasurer—who knows, she may even be made President! She has broken through an insular barrier; what is more, she is the only person in the Union who talks sense, except for another first-year undergraduate from St. Hugh's! So it is clear that at present St. Hugh's is following in the footsteps of our senior Honorand; and I am sure that there are many others who have given lustre to the name of St. Hugh's. In the name of the College, I thank you very much for the toast.

THE PRINCIPAL'S REPORT

T

HE first event of the year 1966 was the entry into occupation of the first of the new buildings of the College. The description of the trials, tribulations, and eventual triumph of this was anticipated in last year's Chronicle. To this one need only add that the enthusiasm of the undergraduates for their new quarters has continued. The official opening came only in Trinity Term. The ceremony was performed on Thursday, 19 May, by Miss C. V. Wedgwood, C.B.E. The Visitor of the College, the Archbishop of Canterbury, was present, and dedicated the building. The Vice-Chancellor was represented by the Rector of Lincoln, Pro-Vice-Chancellor. At the ceremony the name of the building was announced. This had been the subject of much deliberation, but eventually the Governing Body decided on New Building, unimaginative perhaps, but with a 15


respectable Oxford ancestry. It had been intended that the ceremony should take place in the sunken arena at the south end of the building, and should be followed by a garden party. As the morning drew on, however, the weather became more and more depressing, so a last-minute decision had to be taken to transfer the ceremony to the front entrance of the new building and the garden party to the Mordan Hall. For the ceremony, the guests were grouped up the long staircase to the distant heights of the top floor. The scene was far more dramatic than would have been provided by the original setting, and the guests faced the discomfort with great tolerance. The College then turned to the next great step, the Wolfson Building, towards which the Wolfson Foundation has given ÂŁloo,000. The 1965 Chronicle describes how it replaces z, 3, and 4 St. Margaret's Road and runs in a curving line from the Library, where it is set back from the road, to the frontage line of 82 Woodstock Road. The facade is pierced by an archway through which runs the entrance to New Building. Along part of the road frontage are garages and bicycle sheds, with an open space between them and the set back part of the building. Wolfson Building has indeed now fully taken shape, and the Topping Out ceremony celebrating the completion of the roof was held early in Hilary Term. It is now possible to see that the lines of the building are wholly pleasing and that it is an admirable link between the Library and New Building. Very shortly the builders' clutter should disappear and we can think of designing the area of the gardens of the preceding houses to fit in with the buildings and the main garden. In the 1965 Chronicle, reference was made to the move in to Main Building in 1916 exactly fifty years before the inauguration of New Building, in a similar atmosphere of crisis and improvisation. To celebrate the Jubilee, the Governing Body invited all those who had taken part in the original move to dine in Hall on Monday, 21 March. The following were able to accept the invitation: Mrs. Curtis (A. B. Buller), Mrs. Dyke (J. M. Smith), Mrs. FortescueFoulkes (M. G. Vaughan), Mrs. Glover (L. E. Bolton), Miss M. S. Holland, Miss Menai Jones, Miss E. Lemon, Miss E. D. McLeod, Miss M. A. McNeill, Miss D. M. Parr, Dame Margery Perham, Miss V. B. C. F. Rhys Davids, Miss I. M. Sims, Miss I. I. Smith, and Miss E. M. Thomas, together with the following former Fellows: Miss E. E. S. Procter, Miss E. A. Francis, and Miss G. Thorneycroft. After a most enjoyable dinner, the guests were entertained to coffee by the J.C.R. Inevitably, the attention of College has been concentrated on the new buildings. Some Senior Members have thought wistfully that the buildings they knew were suffering by contrast. A welcome gesture to counteract this was a gift of 500 from Miss E. Daws for the embellishment of Main Building. It was decided to apply this to the cost of a new carpet for the main staircase and to a new front door. The carpet was laid at the end of Michaelmas Term, and the staircase is now resplendent in a warm blue and the woodwork has been cleaned. A front door is on order, for the old one is so battered and patched that it cannot be made respectable. The other piece of embellishment is not so immediately visible, for it concerns the S.C.R. The number of members of the S.C.R. has grown to such an extent that there was not enough room even for the members, to say nothing of their guests. It was therefore decided that the room must be enlarged by taking in the Principal's office. This work was carried out in the Long Vacation. A pro16


fessional interior designer was employed. The result is a room of very great elegance, which is much admired and envied by colleagues from other colleges. During the year, a number of changes have been made in the academic staff. To our very great regret, two Tutors and Fellows resigned at the end of Trinity Term : Mrs. Warnock, Tutor in Philosophy, to become Headmistress of Oxford High School, and Mrs. Bleaney to concentrate on her research in the Bone-seeking Isotopes Unit. To take their places, Miss Julianne Rountree (M.A. Edin.) has been appointed Tutor and Probationary Fellow in Philosophy, and Mr. Louis Lyons, M.A. D.Phil., Senior Research Fellow in Nuclear Physics, Lecturer in Physics. Mr. Brian Loar resigned as Lecturer in Philosophy in Hilary Term, and in Michaelmas Term, Miss Clare Lampel (B.A. Toronto, M.A. Chicago, Ph.D. Columbia), was appointed to this post. In Hilary Term Mrs. Frances Brown, M.A., was appointed Lecturer in Physiology, and in Michaelmas Term Miss Barbara Levick, M.A., D.Phil., Fellow of St. Hilda's College, was appointed Lecturer in Ancient History. To our great regret, the Revd. John Ralphs resigned as Chaplain in Trinity Term. We welcome the Revd. Geoffrey Lindley, vicar of St. Margaret's Church, as his successor. In Hilary Term, the Governing Body elected two new Honorary Fellows, the Rt. Hon. Mrs. Barbara Castle, M.P., Minister of Transport, and Lady Wolfson. In the same term Miss A. J. Butt, B.Litt., M.A., D.Phil., University Lecturer in Ethnology, was elected to an Additional Fellowship. In Hilary and Trinity Terms Miss T. C. Cooper was on special leave to work in the Cabinet Office. Miss J. G. Dickinson was on leave in Trinity Term and during her absence Miss T. Tennent was very kindly released by Royal Holloway College to take charge of the Library. In Michaelmas Term 1966, Miss M. Jacobs was on sabbatical leave. The outstanding honour conferred on a Senior Member this year was that of an Honorary D.Sc. for Dr. Mary Cartwright, Mistress of Girton College, Cambridge, at the Encaenia. The O.B.E. has been awarded to Miss L. M. Dolphin, Head of the Department of Classics, Fourah Bay College, University College of Sierra Leone. Miss W. M. Laws has been appointed Headmistress of Milham Ford School. Amongst appointments to academic posts, Mrs. Macdonald (S. Oates) has been appointed Senior Lecturer in Mathematics, University of Newcastle, New South Wales, and Miss J. Jackson has been appointed Assistant Lecturer in Philosophy at Leeds University. In Trinity Term 1966, Miss Margaret Andrews was resident as a Schoolmistress Student. The number of those reading for first degrees in Michaelmas Term was 269, of whom 257 were undergraduates coming straight from school and twelve were of mature years or qualified for Senior Status. The number of candidates in residence reading for higher degrees or diplomas once more increased. Of the forty-two (as compared with thirty-three) candidates for higher degrees, twenty-two are graduates of the College and twenty are graduates of other universities. Of these, twenty are candidates for a B.Litt., one for a B.Phil., four for a B.Sc., eleven for a D.Phil. and two for the Diploma in Advanced Mathematics in preparation for a D.Phil., two for Chemistry Part II, and two for the B.M. Nine graduates of the College and thirteen graduates of other universities are taking diplomas. 17

JUNIOR COMMON ROOM REPORT, 1966 1966 members of the J.C.R. have been involved in their usual number of 1 multifarious activities, but in retrospect it seems to have been a year I dominated by the problems of accommodation. The J.C.R. looks back in gratitude to the Bursar, who, in spite of many delays in the completion of the New Building, worked night and day over the Christmas vacation to have it ready for us to move into at the beginning of the Hilary Term instead of in the second week as scheduled. Later on that term we were pleased to have Miss C. V. Wedgwood and our Visitor, the Archbishop of Canterbury, to open it 25


officially. Unfortunately this year there has been an unprecedented shortage of digs in Oxford and so in the Trinity Term, when College decided to embark on stage z of the building programme and more people than anticipated had to find themselves digs, the situation was grave. Everyone was eventually housed satisfactorily by the end of the first week of the Michaelmas Term. Fund raising activities have continued apace under the direction of Katherine Milner. Last February a most successful Valentine party was organized in the Moran Hall and the Music Society has continued to provide us with a very pleasurable form of money making. Finally, an unexpectedly large sum of money was raised by selling, to members of the College at cut prices, unwanted books, which had been left in the J.C.R. by old students. The redecoration of the J.C.R. has been completed with the help of Carol Bilverstone. We encountered great difficulty in finding carpets and furniture in our price range which also matched the new paint and curtains of last year. The result, however, is a great success and we should like to thank the Bursar for her help and co-operation and the S.C.R. for contributing towards the carpet. The College Ball organized by Vicki Cohen and her committee was arranged round the exotic theme of the Arabian Nights, but it was felt that it was not as successful as it should have been mainly because it was in direct competition with the bigger functions at the men's colleges. It was therefore decided by the succeeding Ball committee, under Judith Taylor, to have a Hilary Term ball instead and preparations have been speedily and efficiently put into action. As usual the Carol Service was held in the College chapel and the St. Hugh's choir was supplemented by the Keble College choir. Later we sang for them at their carol service. The buttery continues to be a great success and we are very appreciative of having a place where we can informally entertain visitors to meals. It was also a great innovation when men's visiting hours were extended to i i p.m., so that escorts can now be provided with a quick cup of coffee after the theatre. In the Michaelmas Term we were asked by the Granada Television to participate in their programme 'University Challenge' and by the time this edition of the Chronicle is in circulation our team's fate should have been decided. In their own spheres, individual members of the J.C.R. have been exceptionally active this year. Julia Annas and Ann Pasternak-Slater are to be congratulated on winning a Craven Prize and the Charles Oldham Shakespeare Scholarship respectively, neither of these are usually awarded to women undergraduates. Janet Morgan has continued her career in the Union, but at the end of the Michaelmas Term made an unsuccessful bid to be the first woman president. Geraldine Jones, however, was elected secretary. The firstyear geographers have maintained the tradition of organizing an expedition and in the long vacation went to El Salvador and helped archaeologists to survey an ancient village. 1966 has not been an easy year in the administration of the College or for the J.C.R., but it is significant that there has been a mutual increase in friendly co-operation, and the J.C.R. is particularly indebted to the Principal and the Bursar for fostering this relationship.

GAMES REPORT, 1965-6 THOUGH the results in hockey and tennis cuppers were disappointing this year, St. Hugh's was well represented in the University team. In particular, six members of the lacrosse team were from College, including the captain, Mary Woodrow. The others were Gillian Hall, Christine Hopkins, Jackie Pool, Sheila Nicholls, and Vicki Cohen. Jackie Pool was selected to play in goal for Combined Universities. Gina Bennett, Christine Farmer, and Lesley Jenking played hockey for the University 1st XI, and Sally Dow, Susan Styles, and Gillian Tattersall played for the znd XI. In the Women's Boat Race, Sally Dow stroked the Oxford crew, and Sarah Reynolds was cox. Kate Milner was another member of the crew, which was just beaten by Cambridge in a very exciting race. Lynnette Wilson was captain of the University Netball team, of which Margaret Flitcroft and Deborah Fairman were also members. Mary White played for the University at squash and tennis, Susan Styles and Lesley Jenking played for the cricket XI, and Vicki Cohen played tabletennis for the first team. Several friendly hockey and tennis matches were also played, mostly with men's colleges, so that many members of College were able to enjoy an occasional game. L. M. JENKING

MISS MARJORIE FOWLE

M

ARJORIE FOWLE died in hospital at Oxford, on 6 July 1966, at the age of 85. She was the youngest and last surviving daughter of the Reverend Thomas Wellbank Fowle, Rector of Islip, and it was at Islip church that the funeral service took place on 12 July. Miss Fowle's connexion with St. Hugh's College began in 1924, when she was appointed Principal's Secretary to Miss Gwyer, and she continued in this office for twenty-two years, retiring in 1946, when Miss Gwyer retired from the Principalship. When Miss Fowle first became Principal's Secretary, the administrative staff at St. Hugh's was smaller than it now is, and some of the work now carried out in the Treasurer's office was then done by the Principal's Secretary. It was Miss Fowle who collected the various certificates which exempted from Responsions and sent them and the matriculation lists to the University Registry. She was responsible for entering candidates' names for all university examinations and for sending in lists of names for degrees. Thus she was constantly in touch with undergraduates, and after they had gone down and taken their degrees, she collected dues and news from them. Her memory was excellent, and she always seemed to remember all members of the College, and to know what they were doing. There must be many senior members of all the generations who entered the College between 1924 and 1946 who remember her cheerful and kindly efficiency, and the interest that she took in their doings. After her retirement, Miss Fowle continued to live in her house in the Woodstock Road and continued to take an interest in the College. She enjoyed visiting it, until lameness from arthritis prevented her getting about. She coped with her increasing disabilities with her accustomed cheerfulness and without complaint. She greatly enjoyed visits from senior members until, in the last year of her life, her memory began to fail. A senior member writes of her 'I always enjoyed going to see her at her house in the Woodstock Road. She was wonderful the way she remembered us all and always gave us such a welcome. She was so much a part of St. Hugh's'. That last sentence would have pleased Miss Fowle, for she always thought of herself as 'a part of St. Hugh's'. E. S. P.

GWENDA HURST

T

(Mrs. G. J. Whitty)

HE sudden death of Gwenda Hurst (Gwenda Whitty, nĂŠe Gwenda J. Norman Jones) occurred on 9 March 1966. Born at Dunedin in November 1913, Gwenda was a third-generation New Zealander. As a girl she travelled widely with her parents, and she received part of her education at St. Mary's School, Calne, in Wiltshire, before returning home to take a degree in history at the University of Wellington. After graduating she joined the staff of the Wellington Evening Post and then became a civil servant in the Air Department. Coming over to England again at the beginning of the Second World War, she was employed first at New Zealand House and then in Oxford, where she worked in the supplying of books to prisoners of war in Europe, a project organized at the Bodleian Library. During the war she married a British army officer, and, in 1945, was left a war widow. Feeling the need to start afresh, Gwenda now took the courageous step of becoming once again an undergraduate, entering the first year at St. Hugh's. Her decision this time to read 30


Geography may partly have been inspired by the experience of her travels, and also was a sign of her growing interest in current affairs. The School of Geography as it was immediately after the war, with its wide range of age and experience, proved a very congenial atmosphere for Gwenda. She was a lively and stimulating companion both at the School and in College. Only those of us who knew her really well perceived that she felt some strain at times in making this new beginning and getting over what she had suffered in the immediate past. She took Schools in 1947. While at St. Hugh's, Gwenda had met John Hurst of Magdalen College, and they were married on 3o December 1947. They went first to live at Carlisle, where Gwenda worked as part-time lecturer for King's College, Newcastle upon Tyne (University of Durham) and for the W.E.A. As an occasional Regional Lecturer in Dominion topics she was already branching out into public work. In 1951 they moved to Manchester, where Gwenda took a Diploma in Education and began her career in geography teaching. She taught at Stretford High School. John's next appointment, from May 1958, first as Deputy-Librarian, then as Librarian at Trinity College, Dublin, took them to Ireland. These last seven years in Ireland brought Gwenda into a foremost place in Irish geographical and educational circles. She taught geography in the Froebel Teacher Training Department of Alexandra College, Dublin. Appreciations of her work as a teacher speak of her rare ability to convey her love of the subject to her audience. She was most up to date in her use of teaching aids and led many excursions into the field. But her service to geography went much further than this. Immediately upon her arrival in Ireland she had joined the Geographical Society of Ireland and she became one of the Society's most active members, serving on the committee from 1961 to 1965. She soon realized that a further body was needed, one especially concerned with the teaching of geography similar to the Geographical Association in Great Britain. From 1961 she spared no effort in launching this project, which saw success with the formation of the Association of Geographical Teachers in March 1962. As the Association's first Hon. Secretary she helped to make the Association one of the strongest and most influential of Irish teachers' organizations. As reported by Gordon L. Davies in Irish Geography, vol. v, no. 3, 1966, her activities were indefatigable. She planned meetings and excursions, arranged refresher courses for teachers, organized exhibitions, and played a leading part in securing the publication of Ordnance Survey map extracts now widely used in Irish schools. Through her own work, and that of the Association Irish geography was revitalized, Mr. Davies's Appreciation, and those published in the Irish Times on 11 and 16 March 1966, and in the Alexandra Guild Magazine, Centenary Number, 1966, show what a great loss Irish geography and education has suffered. All this suggests a formidable, organizing personality, but Gwenda had also a warm humanity. I remember that while she was a teacher at Stretford High School, she told me of her special concern to help children with unrealized potentialities, who needed extra encouragement and support. This was typical of her. She had a great concern for people as individuals. A large circle of friends and students, many from overseas, enjoyed the hospitality of her home at Ballinteer, and latterly at Dalkey. She was always ready to help in any difficulty, and much loved by many. 31


Stricken with a sudden illness at the end of February 1966, Gwenda was taken to hospital and was doing well at the end of a fortnight when she had a sudden relapse and died on 9 March. It was especially sad that John himself was very ill and in another hospital at this very time. Gwenda will be greatly missed, and we of St. Hugh's share this loss. To John, who is now taking up the new and challenging post of first librarian of the New University of Ulster, at Coleraine, due to open in 1968, we send our deepest sympathy. HELEN WALLIS

TEACHING POSTS VACANT

M

ANY schools write to the College to ask if any suggestions can be made of graduates who might be interested in a vacant post. As regards recent graduates, tutors have the requisite information. But there may be others who wish to change their school, or who want to take up teaching again after an interval, or who would like to get a post in a particular neighbourhood. If there are any Senior Members who would like to be notified of vacant posts, it is suggested that they should inform the College, which could then compile a list that could be referred to when notifications of vacancies are received. The College is also from time to time notified of impending appointments of headmistresses. It would again be helpful if there were a list of Senior Members who were interested in obtaining a post as headmistress. K. M. KENYON
