“Old Cats of Both Genders”: Percy Manning and the OAHS

Lecturer: Mike Heaney
Date: February 21st 2017
Time: 5.30pm – 6.30pm
Place: Rewley House

Percy Manning, who died one hundred years ago, collected an extraordinary amount and range of materials relating to Oxfordshire, covering material culture, documents, pictures and oral testimony, which can now be found in the Ashmolean, the Bodleian and the Pitt Rivers. His interests made him a natural candidate to join the OAHS, which he did almost immediately on arriving in Oxford in 1888, and he continued to be a significant contributor to its work over the next twenty years.

Mike Heaney was formerly Executive Secretary of the Bodleian Libraries. He is the editor of a volume of essays celebrating Percy Manning’s life and work, to be published by Archaeopress this year for the centenary of Manning’s death.
