University of Cambridge
The Tripos is the formal examinations of the University of Cambridge. It is commonly divided into two parts, which are taken successively. Hector Munro Chadwick (1870-1947) was professor of Anglo-Saxon at Cambridge University, 1912-1945. Queen Elizabeth visited Cambridge University in August 1564. Sir William Cecil, Secretary of State and Chancellor of the University, requested that a book be compiled of verses composed by members of the University in honour of the visit. Most of the colleges contributed verses, but King's College compiled its own volume. The book was presented to the Queen and returned by her to Cecil. A second volume, detailing college founders, benefactors and members, was prepared, but is now lost.
