Queen's College

Categories: Education

The Queen's college site is a lively site and provides some history.

Catherine Mansfield was a student at Queen's College. 'My college life, which is such a vivid and detailed memory in one way, might never have contained a book or a lecture. I lived in the girls, the professor, the big, lovely building, the leaping fires in winter and the abundant flowers in summer. The views out of the windows, all the pattern that was - weaving.' From 'Letters and Journals' Penguin Bandol, December 1915-April 1916.
