Where history comes to life
The Prince Alfred College Archives is a significant and valuable collection of tangible cultural heritage, which documents the unique history of school life over more than 150 years. Donated material adds to the College's rich narrative and ensures that the College's research and stories are preserved for the benefit of both current and future generations.
About the collection
The Archives currently comprise 1806 Archival Series records of approximately 1.3 linear kilometres of materials relating to the history of Prince Alfred College. These include collections of photographs, papers, memorabilia, a range of objects, trophies, medals, uniform, School ledgers, score books, College publications and official records of the School.
The Archives is generously supported by the Geyer Fund, which was established through a bequest from the late Mrs Dawn Geyer OAM. Established 2016, the Dawn Geyer Archives Fund supports the ongoing development of the College Archives and the preservation of historic items.
Availability of archival records
A closed period of 25 years applies to most records. Access to records not normally available for research can be gained by application in writing to the Headmaster via advice from the College Archivist.
Donations to the Archives
The richness of the College's collections owes much to the generous donations we receive. If you have any material which you think might be of interest to the College Archives, we would love to hear from you. Although we are unable to accept all offers we receive, we are always grateful for the opportunity to consider them for appraisal. For more information, please contact Kate Pulford, Archivist.
