Archives Catalogue

Some of the boxes of Secretary / Registrar files in the archive store.

As part of the So that they may have life project we were delighted to work with Jenni Hunt as Temporary Archives Assistant. Jenni’s role was to enhance the catalogue records of a little-used but important series within the University’s Archives, known as the Registrar and Secretary’s papers.

These boxes contain the correspondence and related papers of the Secretary (later Registrar) of Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland College/University College Leicester. During a 12 week placement, Jenni created detailed descriptions of the contents of nearly 500 files and made some fascinating discoveries.

These descriptions can now be browsed and searched through our Archives Catalogue. You can also find out more about Jenni’s placement by reading her blog posts:
