Anti-Philo Poem

A charming polemic against Philo is just one curio of our archives. The text reads: Philomathean fierce blood suckers, foulest of the vampire brood/Friends of brutish force and Darkness whose deeds would curdle human blood/Famished in their self-made desert, blinded by our purer ray/Grope among the untainted Freshmen for their miserable prey.

The Philomathean Society administers a large and varied collection of material in its Archives, including documents, reports and photographs dating back to the society’s foundation.

The purpose of the Archives is to protect and preserve these historical treasures whilst serving as an accessible repository of, and inspiration for, great Philomathean works and deeds of the present and the future.

Archival Reorganisation The Archive is undergoing a serious reorganisation effort in order to establish a systematic catalogue and classification system. This, as you can imagine, is a fairly large undertaking, so please bear with the Archives as progress is being made. We hope at the end of the process to offer on this website a comprehensive database of archival items for the interest of the general and scholarly publics.
