LSE Calendars 1895 - 2006

From 1895-2006 the Calendar was the core public record of the work of the School.
The content of the Calendar developed over time and it provides general information relating to the School including: the Director’s annual report; lists of School staff; School regulations for the admission of students, course guides, timetables, degree lists and details of scholarships, prizes and staff publications.
From 1895-1900 the School’s courses were listed in yearbook which became the Calendar from the School’s entry into the University of London in 1900. Due to the impact of the First World War abridged calendars were published between 1915-1920 and short prospectuses were published during the Second World War from 1940-46.

LSE Registers

The volume presented, as the first Register of the London School of Economics and Political Science from 1895 to 1932, covers thirty-seven years in the history of the School, but covers only thirty years of graduations in the University of which the School forms part.

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).
