Walking on the Grass, Dancing in the Corridors: Newnham at 150 contains a smörgåsbord from the whole Newnham community: fellows, alumnae, students, staff, and visitors alike. Journals, drawings, photographs, door notepads, interviews and recently discovered archival material will capture something of the whole experience of being at Newnham.

To accompany these personal stories Gill Sutherland, former Vice-Principal of Newnham and an authority on nineteenth- and twentieth century education, contributes an introduction which offers an overarching narrative of Newnham's importance since the College was founded.

This collection of individual stories charts not only the history of women's education in Cambridge but also presents a close portrait of a College by those who have lived and worked there. Dance down the corridor of this anthology and help us to ignite the 150th year by celebrating the whole community of Newnham in all its variety.
