  • History

    New Hall was founded in 1954 and from the first has kept records of its history. The collection was begun by the first President, Dame Rosemary Murray, who kept scrapbooks of press cuttings throughout her presidency and left behind twenty boxes of papers, which include minutes and papers of the Committee on the Third Foundation for Women dating from 1948. Since her retirement successive Librarians have acted as keepers of the archives, with input also from a part time Archivist.
