Do you have any memorabilia from your student days? Photos, posters, play and concert programmes, records of clubs and societies, or more personal items recording your time at Merton are of interest for the College Archives. If you have anything that you would like to share for the occasion, or find a permanent home for, the Archivist, Julian Reid, would be very pleased to hear from you.
