MC:P174/X1/1 Jul 1929–Jun 1934
Scrapbook compiled by Hodgkinson while still at Oundle, and later when at Magdalen. It includes concert and theatre programmes, dinner menus, newspaper cuttings and exhibition catalogues. Some items have been put in envelopes which themselves were pasted into the volume. There are also some photographs, including of Eights Week 1932 at Magdalen (in which Hodgkinson took part), and ephemera from his visit to Paris in the spring of 1931 (including a programme from the Folies-Bergère). Hodgkinson also included his last report from Oundle, as well as his examination papers from both Oundle and Magdalen.
MC:P174/X1/2 Jan 1934–May 1935
Scrapbook compiled in succession to X1/1 above, and containing similar material (although there are no photographs or examination paper here). Unusual items in this book include invitation cards for parties at Hodgkinson’s digs in Stanley Road, and programmes from the 1934 Salzburg Festival.
Two items relating to the first season of Glyndebourne had been taken from this book before its deposit and presented to the archives at Glyndebourne, as being unique copies.
