Foyle College Archive comprises material relating to the school founded in 1617 by Matthias Springham and its development to the present day. The archive consists of books, pamphlets, reports, journals and photographs. Personal papers, school records and Minutes as well as a considerable collection of school related ephemera may also be found in the collection.
The material in this collection spans four centuries and provides a social and historical commentary not only on the school itself but also on Ulster and colonial Britain, particularly in the 19th century. Famous past pupils include the Lawrence brothers, Alexander, George and Henry, who are more particularly associated with the Indian Mutiny of 1857.
