Ninety years ago this Christmas, Britain experienced one of the heaviest snowfalls recorded in the twentieth century. Assistant Archivist, Sally Kent, examines the Heythrop archives to see how the College was affected.
Tuesday 5 December is International Volunteer Day. Volunteers are an invaluable help to the work of the Jesuits in Britain Archives and have in total dedicated over 700 hours of their time since 2014. Current volunteer, Anne Courtney, gives an account of the work she has been doing for us.
As part of the annual Explore Your Archive campaign, the Jesuits in Britain Archives held an open day on Tuesday 21st November 2017. Members of staff at the Jesuit Provincial Offices in Mount Street and members of the wider Jesuit community were invited to visit the Archives to see a special display of items discovered over the last year through moving collections and cataloguing. Assistant Archivist, Sally Kent, reports on the day.
