Biographical / Historical

The society was established in 1903 to promote discussion about classical teaching both in the university and in a wider context. From the outset membership was open to any graduate resident in Cambridge with an interest in the subject but in practice its members were largely from the university. It also aimed to be a forum in which to discuss how best to meet the requirements of the Tripos.
