1902 diary

my grandfather's diary of his first term at Hartley

By Rachel Larkinson

I am in the process of editing the diary my grandfather kept during his first term at theological college in Manchester in the autumn of 1902.  It contains information about the staff - Dr Arthur Peake was a tutor at the time,  the range of the syllabus, which included Greek, Hebrew and Latin, descriptions of the city and references to current events, and quite a lot about student life.

I have scanned a page of the diary and a photo of the student body.  If anyone can help with identifying any individuals I shall be glad to know.
