Queen's College Belfast Magazines
Q.C.B. was the student magazine at Queen's College Belfast. A full run of the magazine can be found in the Special Collections at the McClay Library at Queen's University Belfast. The magazines contain articles on contemporary topics, letters from students and responses from the editor, advertisements, and (often hilarious) accounts of university happenings.
Below are some articles relating to women at Queen's College Belfast - including comments on the women's studying and tea-making skills, their clothing, and their constant inability (or so the men say) to get to class on time! And when you're finished reading the short extracts, why not post a comment to the Discussion Forum!
