CALENDARS: King's College London publication

  • K/CAL
  • Collection
  • 1832-1986

King's College London Calendars, 1832-1986. This series is one of the most important and accessible sources of biographical information on students and staff, an illustration of the changing content of courses, lectures and syllabuses and of the evolution of the administrative structure of the College since its inception. The level of information varies: the earliest and most recent calendars and those published during the two World Wars, for example, contain less detailed information than the period between 1848 and 1976. The first calendar, 1832-1833, contains a table of contents, texts of the sermon preached at the opening of the College and the texts of public lectures, some of which are the only copies extant in the College Archives. The bulk of the series typically consist of a table of contents; calendar of term dates and events; general information on all departments within the College; lists of Governors, the Council, the Delegacy, Professorial/Academic Board members, academic staff, masters, associates, scholars, fellows and prize winners and university distinctions; outlines of lecture courses, syllabi, examination question papers; fees; some texts of lectures and addresses; rules and regulations; and annual reports of the Council and Delegacy. Indices begin in 1846. Comprehensive lists of all students and pupils begin in 1847 and refer to those who enrolled during the previous academic session. Lists of senior academic staff for each department begin in the earliest calendars and additional consolidated alphabetical lists of past and present staff are printed from 1880. The calendar for 1882 contains a copy of the King's College London Act to amend the constitution. Descriptions of associate grammar schools are included up until 1892, and brief descriptions of College societies are given from 1896. The 1903 calendar contains the King's College London Acts of 1882 and 1903. Calendars from 1909 include a copy of an outline history of the College. Lists relating to King's College School's masters or pupils end in 1912. The calendar for 1915 includes tables of past and present members of the College on active service. Calendars from 1942-1943 through to 1947-48 also include a roll of honour of those members of the College killed whilst on active service. The 1948 calendar contains the second version of the history of King's College. From 1964 onwards there is no full list of students in attendance, but information includes a general index and index of names, and the third version of the College history. The printing of Annual Reports ceases in 1976. The 1980 calendar contains the fourth history of King's, and the fifth version of the history appeared in 1984. The 1985 calendar is typical of later volumes, comprising a contents page giving historical background, general information, administrative, committee, faculty and departmental structure, and an alphabetical list of staff. Following the merger of King's with Queen Elizabeth and Chelsea Colleges in 1985, the publication of calendars was discontinued.

SHAREHOLDERS: King's College London records

  • K/SH
  • Collection
  • 1828-1882

Records of the shareholders of King’s College London, 1828-1882, 1907, consisting of registers of shareholders 1828-1882, 1907; registers of transfer of shares 1830-1869; share certificate books, 1829-1863; shareholders correspondence 1828-1846; shareholders student nomination registers, 1839-1876; various forms for share applications.

King’s College London was founded by Royal Charter in 1829. It was estimated that around £170,000 was needed to build and equip the new College. By August 1828 £100,000 had been raised by donations and subscriptions in the form of £100 shares, carrying a dividend of not more than 4 percent. However, Catholic Emancipation and the chosen site of the proposed College divided shareholders and many refused to honour promises to buy shares. The existing shares had failed to yield interest and some shareholders began to lose faith in the scheme. The College tackled this setback by creating shares of £25, but this did little to prevent 150 shareholders withdrawing. Shareholders were often referred to as proprietors and were allowed the privilege of nominating one student for the King’s College School and one student for the College. Shares of over £100 are referred in the shareholders’ records as ‘First Class’ and those under £100 are referred to as ‘Second Class’. After 1848 most shares were converted into donations when it became clear that the shares would never yield any interest. The College Charter of 1882 extinguished the ‘First Class’ shareholders claims to pecuniary profit and abolished dividend from the shares but their nomination privileges were retained and could be transferred. Donors Second Class maintained nomination privileges until their death, but their shares were non-transferable.
