Cheltenham College

British Educational Establishment

In 1976 the museum paid £1400 for a mixed collection of objects from Cheltenham College, Bath Road, Cheltenham, Gloucestershire.

Cheltenham College is the first major Victorian public school, founded in 1841. See 'Cheltenham College: The First Hundred Years' by MC Morgan. For the early history of the College see "Cheltenham College Register, 1841-1889". The school's museum was created in 1870, with an emphasis on Natural History. In 1923 it was moved into a larger, more modern building. Some of the collections have known donors, such as Sir Reginald St Johnson who worked in Fiji 1907-1917, but the bulk of the collection has no provenance. An inventory exists with details of displays, dated 1933.
