Remembering George Calderon

The college archivist, Clare Hopkins, has written a blog post about George Calderon, writer, novelist, playwright and translator, who came to Trinity in 1887 and died at Gallipoli in June 1915.

The illustrated article, ‘One Man and his College’, considers Calderon’s time at Trinity, including many details of college life in the late nineteenth century, and discusses his satirical novel Downy V. Green which is set in a fictional college, but clearly based on Trinity.
