1969 Ruby Reunion

In recent years there have been a series of successful and enjoyable reunions of members of the College who decided to celebrate the anniversary of their matriculation in a special way. A Ruby Reunion was held on Sunday 13th September 2009 for a group of Caians who matriculated in 1969 and their partners.

The programme included:

  • Coffee and biscuits in the Cavonius Centre in the Stephen Hawking Building
  • A buffet lunch including wines
  • Library display & Archive talk
  • Tea in the Master's garden with Sir Christopher and Lady Hum
  • A Service of Celebration in Chapel led by Revd Canon Brian Watchorn
  • A champagne reception
  • A four course dinner in Hall, including all wine etc

The reunion was commemorated by the establishment of a fund to raise £300,000 to endow a 1969 College Lectureship. In June 2010, the 1969 Lecturship Fund reached this target which will enable the College to name the new lectureship for the new academic year in October.
