The Spike or Victoria College Review 1936
Activated by the incompleteness of the Victoria College records, Mr. G. F. Dixon, to whom we are indebted for the list below, has spent much labour in tracing the names of past students in all possible sources. Lists of earlier students, from the foundation of the College, were published in the last two issues of "Spike." Mr. Dixon writes as follows:—
In all but a very few cases, the persons whose names are given in this list have been definitely identified and the particulars in regard to them are as accurate as it is possible to make them. In the case of the remaining few—about ten or twelve—it has not been possible to trace them for more than a year or two subsequent to 1909 and in a very few cases it has not even been possible to obtain any clue whatever as to the identity of the individual concerned.
My next list, I hope, will cover the years 1910, 1911 and 1912 and complete the task I originally set out to do, viz., to place on permanent record the names of all students who attended V.U.C. during the years 1899 to 1912 inclusive—there being at present no such list in existence.
