Marlborough Chalk

Tuesday 9th May 2023

We are delighted to share six new articles from Marlborough Chalk, our new academic publication which aims to capture and present some of the qualities of the College, its history and its area.

In these latest articles, Philip M tells the story of Lord Hunt (C2 1924-28) and the first successful Everest expedition and Saul T R analyses the poetry of Charles Hamilton Sorley (C1 1908-13). Nina B looks at the story behind The Byam Family portrait by Gainsborough, a copy of which hangs in the Adderley, and Daisy D discusses with the Master the significance of the nineteenth century painting of the College which hangs in the Master’s Lodge. Catriona M has researched the formation of rugby at the College and Alisa A explains the hidden importance of chalk in everyday life.

These excellent articles add interesting new angles to the growing collection of work.

You can read these and all the entertaining and impressive articles published to date on our Marlborough Chalk webpage and more will follow across this term. At the end of the academic year, the articles will be compiled into a single publication in both printed and digital format. The full digital publication will be available under the Pupil Publications section on our website.
