The Spike or Victoria College Review 1937
As previously explained, I discovered some years ago that Victoria College possessed no permanent record of the names of those students who attended lectures there during any part of the period 1899—1915 inclusive. By searching the Registrar's receipt books for fees paid by students. I was able to compile such a list for the years 1899—1913 inclusive, but unfortunately the records for the years 1914—15 had already been destroyed. Lists of students who entered V.U.C. during each of the years 1899 to 1909 inclusive have already appeared in the Spike. and in continuation of that work the list of those who entered the College in the year 1910 is submitted herewith. It is, unfortunately, not complete so far as years of actual attendance of some students is concerned because of the difficulty above-mentioned of ascertaining whether they continued at V.U.C. subsequent to 1913.
There are ways in which further information can be obtained which will permit of the list being made complete, but I am sorry that I personally have not been able to undertake this extra work for the time being. The same difficulty presents itself in respect of the lists for 1911, 1912, and 1913, all of which I have in a form for final checking, but am unable to complete for this year's issue of the Spike. They will appear in a later issue.
