Preston Grammar School Association

The Archive

The Association has a collection of material which has been gathered and donated by various Old Boys (and their families and friends) over the years. This material is currently being gathered together and properly catalogued by the Association's Archivist. The archive is split into four main databases:

The databases have a common layout, consisting of 8 columns:

Column 1 - Ser - a sequential serial number of the items within each database.

Column 2 - Item type within the specific database:

  • A - Albums
  • As - Association literature
  • B - Brochures
  • H - Hoghtonians
  • L - Letters
  • M - Media articles
  • N - Notebooks
  • O - Orders of Service
  • P - Programmes
  • S - Sporting documents
  • C - Caps
  • N - Neckwear
  • S - Shirts
  • T - Trousers
  • M - Model
  • V - Voltmeter
  • B - Building
  • C - Camp
  • G - Group
  • I - Individual
  • S - Sport

Column 3 - Classification identifier - a complex alphanumeric identifier showing the relationship and date of the item. For instance in the classification of Ser No 1 in Photographs - PG1935.1 - P means PGSA, G = Group, 1935 is the year and .1 is the first item for that year.

Column 4 - A detailed description of the item.

Column 5 - A unique item identifier related to the whole Archive collection irrespective of individual database.

Column 6 - Location of the individual item.

Column 7 - The date on which the item was identified and accepted into the Archive.

Column 8 - General information column.
