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.
