This richly illustrated hardback celebration of Worcester includes much fascinating new research into the history of the College, but it offers far more than a tour through the archives. There are sections on College life and College characters as well as the buildings and gardens, books and pictures and clubs and societies.

Since it is the foundation as Worcester that we are remembering, the emphasis is on more recent history – including such momentous events as the advent of women in 1979! – though there is of course an account of the 'pre-history' as Gloucester College and Gloucester Hall, not to mention the brief interlude as the 'Greek College.'

Worcester features lively reminiscences from those generations past and present, along with memorabilia and vivid contemporary photography, to create a living portrait of Worcester which will be treasured by every Worcester alumnus and alumna.
