'It is difficult for anyone who has not been in residence during the past year to appreciate the effects of the War on the life of the University. But the change which it has produced in College life is even more marked, and Sidney has probably been affected as much as any College.'
To mark the centenary of the Great War we are developing an online portrait of the College between 1914 and 1918. Our knowledge of how the lives of members, and indeed the College as an institution, were shaped by the War is incomplete. We hope to expand these pages with profiles of the many ways that members contributed to and were affected by the War, and explain more about how the College was profoundly changed by those events.
