Scope and content
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.
