Churchill College Library opened and the acquisition of Admiral John de Robeck’s archive announced

The archives of Admiral Sir John de Robeck were deposited at Churchill Archives Centre by his great nephew, the 7th Baron de Robeck, in July 1965. By the terms of the Admiral’s will they had been kept in the family’s possession, first in London and then at Gowran Grange, Naas, County Kildare, until the last of his contemporaries had died. Mrs Jocelyn Proby (widow of the 6th Baron) added the Midshipman’s Logs to the collection in 1982.
