At the end of August, we said goodbye to a College stalwart: Mark Blandford-Baker (right, with star of Endeavour Shaun Evans, left). Mark, or MBB as you may know him, has been our Home Bursar for 20 years. He was responsible for overseeing domestic operations at College including catering, gardening, housekeeping, and maintenance, amongst many other things. Mark was known for his passion for rowing and has written a number of books on the subject including Upon the Elysian Stream: 150 Years of Magdalen College Boat Club. Mark leaves Magdalen to become Chief Executive of the Rothschild Foundation.
We all wish him well in his future endeavours and hope to see him back at College often in his new role as Emeritus Fellow.
