Scope and Content

These albums were begun by George

William Reeves, and continued by Sybil

Reeves. They contain newspaper cuttings,

mostly from local papers. The source

and date of each cutting is given.

The cuttings mostly concern events with

which George Reeves was involved. These

include reports on rowing (including the

Henley Regattas; he was Captain of

Henley Rowing Club), athletics,

societies such as the Henley

Horticultural Society and the Ancient

Order of Druids, and reports of Town

Council meetings. There are also

accounts of local festivities in

response to coronations and jubilees,

and of the opening of Henley's new Town

Hall, as well as some obituaries of

local people. Reeves also put in

cuttings about his marriage, and some

programmes for the Henley regatta and

other sporting events.
