Papers of Philip Cawthorne Fletcher (1882-1961)

Philip Cawthorne Fletcher (1882–1961) came up to University College in 1901 from Rugby, and was awarded a Scholarship. He read Classics, and was awarded a Second in 1905.

In 1908, he became a master at Charterhouse, and remained there until his retirement in 1945. In 1938, he founded a Scholarship to be awarded every other year to Old Carthusians coming up to University College.
    Of his papers, UC:P10/F1–F2, a collection of consisting of undergraduate bills, were certainly given to the College in 1982. UC:P10/P1/1 was found in a different part of the Archives in the stocktaking of 1993, but were almost certainly given at the same time.
    The photographs are the most important part of UC:P10; They include photographs of College Societies, most notably the Martlets and the Churchwardens’ society, and alongside the formal team photos are some small ones clearly taken by Fletcher himself.

Recatalogued by Andrew Crawford in June 2009.
