Scope and content

Fonds documents all aspects of Trinity College's program of granting in absentia music degrees in Britain
from its inception in 1885 to its demise in 1891. Included in this material is correspondence with practicing
musicians, with those administering the program in Britain, and with various university and government
officials. There are administrative records such as calendars, degree requirements and formal
examination papers. Formal and legal documents, such as the “Memorial” and responses to it, as well as
communications with university chancellors show the increasing opposition to the program. Many
newspaper and journal clippings document these events.
