A month before Robin Myers retired from her post as the Modern Archivist, Lucy Hughes joined the College as her replacement. She will also be responsible for managing the College records.
Lucy read English at Downing College, then did an MPhil at Darwin, and a PhD at Queen Mary College, University of London in Medieval English Literature. She worked for ABELL for nine years, then retrained as an Archivist with Aberystwyth University. Whilst studying for the diploma, she has worked on a voluntary basis at the Scott Polar Research Institute and Downing College.
Lucy can normally be found in the Archives on Monday, Tuesday and Friday mornings.
