50th Anniversary Book

This beautiful commemorative hardback book looks back fondly and affectionately on the College's first 50 years.

It is a shared project drawing on the College as a whole – as Fellows and alumni, staff and students. To celebrate Darwin College's widely spread international population and its broad spectrum of research interests, the book contains an eclectic mix of our history, anecdotes, achievements, myths and personalities.

It is richly illustrated with newly commissioned images by College alumnus and photographer Ihsan Aslam (Sir Cam), and pictures from the archives, many never seen before. The book chronicles the College's life from its very first steps in 1964. The three founding Colleges – Gonville and Caius, Trinity, and St John's – foresaw the inevitable increase in graduate education, and the need to focus support through a dedicated Cambridge college. The book shows how Darwin has evolved over the years to become the international community of graduate students, postdoctoral workers, senior visitors, and Fellows that it is today.

The price of the book is £40. Or buy one signed by our current Master and three of her predecessors for £45. These limited edition books are available on-line from our 50th Anniversary shop http://shop.dar.cam.ac.uk/
