Archive Image of the Month

Let Selwyn's archivist, Elizabeth Stratton, give you a taster of the college archives. Every month Elizabeth selects a particularly interesting piece from the archives and provides an insight into its history and significance. 

 Archive Image of the Month – July 2019

Selwyn Jazz Group 1995

 Archive Image 81 July 2019

Our archive image of the month is a photograph of the Selwyn Jazz group in 1995, donated by Olly Wedgwood (1993) who can be seen conducting.

Olly tells us that the band was playing for one of the May Balls that year. He has been able to identify many of the individuals, several of whom were at Selwyn, including Jon Hooper, Derek Scurll, Alexa Papdouris (now Murray), David Ellis, Fred Wilson, Bruce Johnson, Johnny Halliwell and Martin Skipsey. Let us know if you can recognise any of the others in the photo.

Olly was president for the Selwyn May Ball ‘Camelot’ in 1995 and has been able to pass on various photos from that summer for us to use in displays and keep in the archives. He regularly performs with his current jazz band at our annual summer Family Day – this year indoors because of the weather!

As always, any questions about the college archives can be directed to the archivist on We are always grateful to hear from members of college about any photographs and memories you may have of your time at Selwyn and they can also be uploaded directly here.

Previous archive images can be seen here.
