Welcome to Clare College Archives

Please note this new catalogue currently only contains records for the College's administrative archive. For information on our photographic collections and collections of personal papers, please search for Clare College holdings on the Archives Hub here: https://archiveshub.jisc.ac.uk/

Clare College Archives contain, first and foremost, the administrative archive of Clare College, together with small collections of personal papers of senior members of the College, clubs and society records and historical collections relating to the College. Though Clare was founded in 1326, few archives survive from before the disastrous fire in the Master's Lodge in 1521.

To discover the archives available at Clare, please access our catalogue by clicking on the 'browse' button above and select 'Archival descriptions' from the menu that appears.

Please note that this catalogue is a work-in-progress and, while it does not yet cover the entirety of our archival holdings, new material is being added to it all the time.
