Celebrating our 125th anniversary: memories of LSE from our community

As part of our 125th anniversary celebrations in the 2020/21 academic year, we asked the LSE community to get in touch and share their photos and memories.
Students, alumni and LSE staff members were all invited to make a permanent contribution to the history of the School, for our Digital Library.
This collection spans multiple decades and features photographs from our community, showcasing personal milestones as well as important cultural moments at LSE.

Tales from Houghton Street: an LSE oral history

Was life as an LSE student so different in 1955 to 2015? What changes have our long-serving staff seen over the years? Where was there a Paternoster lift on campus? Who was Wright of Wright’s Bar? Find the answers to these questions and more in Tales from Houghton Street, an oral history project to celebrate LSE’s 120th anniversary in 2015.

Everyone at LSE has a story to tell and in summer 2015 the oral history project team (Hayley Reed, Sue Donnelly, Clara Cook and Tom Sturdy) was fortunate enough to speak to a small selection of alumni, academic and professional services staff about their LSE experience.

The collection contains one introductory podcast and 30 audio recordings of interviews with alumni and staff who were studying or working at LSE between the 1950s and 2015.

Participants discussed themes including their experiences as students, teachers and researchers at LSE, developments in higher education and the future of LSE. They also shared memories about the changes on LSE’s campus: the buildings, halls of residence, the social life, and about life in London through the years.

Each recording is accompanied by a summary of the interview to help researchers identify key points. The introductory podcast features excerpts from the interviews with alumni Carol Wain (1967), Brian Van Arkadie (1956) and Mary Evans (1967/1968, LSE Centennial Professor, Gender Institute).

London Mayor Elections

Manifestos from candidates standing for election as Mayor of London. Also includes booklets sent to all registered electors providing a guide to voting in the Mayor of London and the London Assembly Elections. Material is from the 2016 and 2021 elections.

Global Security Briefings

Professor Paul Rogers' Global Security Briefings series was launched in mid-2001, exploring the potential for major security challenges from the global margins. Paul continued to share his expertise, analysis and commentary on security issues in his monthly briefings up until ORG ceased operations in 2020.

Sustainable Security Programme

The Sustainable Security Programme was established in 2006-2007, expanding on Paul Rogers' work on marginalisation, climate change and geopolitics, as well as ORG's work on recording of casualties in armed conflict. The programme aimed to highlight the limitations of orthodox security policy and to develop policy alternatives that address underlying drivers.

Strategic Peacebuilding Programme

The Strategic Peacebuilding Programme (formerly the Middle East Programme) was ORG's conflict resolution programme which sought to contribute to preventing, transforming and ending violence by changing how people think about and engage with conflict.
The programme used a methodology based in ‘radical disagreement’ theory to build the capacity of local partners to engage in strategic dialogue and brokered a series of Track II dialogues in Israel, Palestine and Egypt and between Iran, Saudi Arabia, Syria and other states.

Remote Warfare Programme

The Remote Warfare Programme (RWP) was established in 2018, based around the Remote Control project of the Network for Social Change, which had been hosted by ORG since 2013. It was set up to examine changes in military engagement, with a focus on remote warfare (in which countries like the United Kingdom choose to support local and regional forces on the front lines rather than deploying large numbers of their troops).

Every Casualty

Between 2007 and 2014 ORG's Every Casualty Programme (formerly known as the Recording Casualties of Armed Conflict programme), sought to coordinate and systematise global efforts to enhance the technical, legal and institutional capacity, as well as the political will, for every single casualty of armed conflict throughout the world to be recorded, civilian as well as combatant. Since October 2014, Every Casualty Worldwide has been operating as an independent NGO - please visit for more information.

ORG Blog

The ORG blog was a platform for defence and security experts to exchange and discuss ideas. The views and opinions expressed by commissioned authors do not necessarily reflect those of ORG.

A Story of ORG

In a special series of podcasts, ORG talks with people involved in the development and evolution of ORG in its early days.

'These Dangerous Women' Oral History Project

The series contains the recordings of interviews of 8 members of WILPF and related documents. The interviews were conducted between 2013 and 2015, as part of a part of the 'These Dangerous Women' community heritage project to mark the centenary of the formation of the Women's International League for Peace and Freedom (WILPF). Funded by the National Lottery Heritage and run by Clapham Film Unit and WILPF, the project's aims were to celebrate and commemorate the women who tried to stop World War I and founded the organisation. For more information, visit the WILPF UK website.
