This substantial project to record a quarter of a century of the history of St Hugh’s through brief accounts of the lives of its mid to late 20th century graduates may interest an alumna/alumnus of the College who has a long term perspective on developments at St Hugh’s since 1960 and who could take on the role of General Editor working with a senior member colleague with complementary skills. Or it could suit two St Hugh’s senior members working as co-editors. The two people who take on this task will be invited to join the Alumni Association Committee which provides regular contact with the College and is a source of support. As for past projects this one, too, is offered as being on a voluntary unpaid basis.
