Harrow School Archive
The collection consists of a wide variety of school activities, such as Archery and Swimming, as well as pupil filmed sketches, cricket tours, plays and pantomimes, visits of eminent and royal personages.
Founded by John Lyon in 1592, Harrow School has progressed from a free Grammar School for local boys to a fee-paying and famous public school. It survived the threat and loss of pupils during the first and second world wars, and modernized itself without shedding the trappings of custom. The Archive's principal collections reflect the organization and development of the school.
