Sidney Sussex College: A History
Richard Humphreys (Sidney Sussex, 1972)
Sidney Sussex College
Richard Humphreys, an alumnus of Sidney and an enthusiast for all aspects of its history, has unearthed fascinating facts, people and connections that present the life of an extraordinary community through four hundred years of English history.
The book brings to life the people of Sidney Sussex, from the pious and much-maligned Lady Frances Sidney and the young Oliver Cromwell, to the Nobel Prizewinners and Bletchley Park code breakers of the recent past.
Thoroughly researched, immensely readable and beautifully illustrated and designed, this lively account of Sidney Sussex College is published in 2009, the 800th anniversary of the founding of the University, to mark Sidney’s remarkable role in the history of Cambridge.
