In preparation for writing our new College History to celebrate our 400th centenary year, we asked alumni who matriculated from 1960 onwards to send in reminiscences about their time at Pembroke. In 2010, a similar exercise was undertaken for alumni who matriculated before 1960 and, together with various other memories that have been sent to the College over the years, the archive now has a rich collection of information and insights into life at Pembroke during the 20th century and into the 21st.

During our quadricentenary year, we will be publishing these reminiscences in full in a series of illustrated 'decade' booklets which we hope will prove to be not only interesting to contemporaries but also to future researchers of College, University and Oxford history.

This will remain an ongoing project - if anyone would like to send their memories in for inclusion in the booklets, then please email
