St Peter's College, Oxford
|St Peter's College|
|Master||Prof. Bernard Silverman|
St Peter's College is one of the constituent colleges of the University of Oxford in the United Kingdom. It is located on New Inn Hall St, slightly west of the city centre, and near the Oxford Union. It is a graduate and undergraduate college with varied architecture, dating from Georgian to the present day.
Although the college occupies the site of 2 of Oxford's oldest medieval inns or hostels (one of which was New Inn Hall) dating back to the thirteenth century, its history really began in 1929 when St Peter's Hall was founded by Francis James Chavasse, Bishop of Liverpool. In 1961 St Peter's Hall was given full collegiate status by the University, and being granted its Royal Charter in the same year, it took the name St Peter's College.
The story of Noel Godfrey Chavasse, son of Francis James Chavasse may be interesting to readers.
