Harris Manchester College

The archives of Harris Manchester College reflect its place in the history of dissenting academies and in particular the Unitarian foundations of the college.

We hold papers relating to the college in its earliest form as the Warrington Academy including minute books, annual reports, and photos of the college and its people to the present day.

A major component of the archive are the papers and writings of past members of the college as well as other prominent Unitarians.


Our collection was catalogued by Dennis Porter of the Bodleian and first published in 1998. It is kept up to date in PDF form. See our website for further details:
