Wilma Minty is a native of Coatbridge, Lanarkshire, Scotland. After schooling locally, she gained a Master of Theology (Old Testament and New Testament) degree at St. Andrews University. She came to Oxford in 1976 to pursue graduate work in Cuneiform and Targumic Studies but soon discovered that her métier lay in its libraries rather than in the mainstream of academia. In 1978, she was appointed Librarian of the (then) newly combined collections of the University’s Theology Faculty and of Pusey House on the site of the present St. Cross College.
On Monday 27 June (TT 10) at 1pm, Professor Lesley J Higgins will speak on ‘Spelt from Hopkins’ Leaves: Considering Archival “Remains”’.
The Campion Hall community was pleased to welcome guests for its annual Garden Party last week. Held during one of Oxford's rare days of sunshine, the Garden Party was a pleasant opportunity for friends of the Hall, alumni of Jesuit schools around the world, and various other well-wishers to come by and toast what was hopefully a productive academic year. The Master of Campion Hall, Rev'd Dr James Hanvey, SJ, presided and hosted while members of the Hall community helped make guests feel at home.
The old Irish greeting, Cead Mile Failte, “a hundred thousand welcomes”, was clearly appropriate at Campion Hall on 13th May, when Oxford University’s recently appointed Vice-Chancellor, Professor Louise Richardson FRSA, formally graced the Hall with her company for the first time, at a Guest Night dinner at which participants included some members of the Jesuit community and other guests who also hailed from her native Ireland.
