William Whewell: printed notices by and relating to the University of Cambridge, two tax certificates, and drafts of notices and reports

Papers believed to have been gathered by William Whewell, with his drafts and notes on some papers, and one bearing marks of having been mailed to him. These papers consist of over 100 printed notices dated from 1845-1854, the bulk of which are dated 1853-1854. The notices concern graces offered to the University of Cambridge Senate, as well as notices to members of the university concerning tradesmen, lectures, prizes, clerk elections, and a visit by Prince Albert. These are accompanied by 23 miscellaneous reports and petitions concerning topics before the University of Cambridge Senate, or relating to Trinity College; two property and income tax certificates, made upon the University of Cambridge in February 1843, and are accompanied by four printed items bearing revisions in Whewell's hand, and five sheets of drafts in Whewell's hand.
