Scope and content
This ledger, kept by the Head of House, contains a list of Heads of House for Grants, but does not outline the rules and customs of the House, which are contained in a separate ledger. It includes the house chronicle, accounts of what happened within the House in the previous term, lists of those who were tanned and what they were tanned for, general accounts of the previous terms and anything the Head of House thought noteworthy to record, including comments about students and staff. Early accounts give details about evacuation during the Second World War, and there are also accounts of any plays the House performed and of the Play Supper. Sporting achievements are noted and there are various inserts throughout the volume, including photographs and cuttings from the 'Grantite Review'.
