A ‘Maddicott Room’ at Cohen Quadrangle

Exeter Historians of the last 40 years have been giving generously to the construction of Cohen Quadrangle in honour of their tutor, Dr John Maddicott.

Dr Maddicott was Fellow in History at the College from 1969 – 2006 and remains active in writing and research, publishing Founders and Fellowship: The Early History of Exeter College, Oxford to coincide with our 700th anniversary in 2014.

The donations will be used towards the construction of the “Maddicott Room” at Cohen Quadrangle, a modern, spacious teaching room that will be available for use by students and academics, for both formal and informal study.

The total given stands at just under £80,000 and we have high hopes of reaching our £100,000 target over the coming months.  If you would like to support the Maddicott Room through a gift of any size, please contact Tessa Stanley Price in the Development Office.
