College & OF History: 1975-2000
Into the Third Millennium
Framlingham College...
By John Maulden


First days at school over 140 years ago

William Henry Boothby Phillips (1873-75) (1) (121x170)
We were contacted by the great granddaughter of WILLIAM HENRY BOOTHBY PHILLIPS (1873-75). Sadly we had little information on his time at the College but she had a fascinating letter he wrote to his father when starting at the College in September 1873.  It gives a real insight into life at the College over 140 years ago and within 10 years of the College opening.

As well as a photo of him, Fritha has provided a transcript of the letter, followed by information on his early life and then scans of the original letter - click here to see more.
