Class of 1977

This page was originally set up in 2007 to celebrate 30 years of the Class of '77.

Well it's now 2017 and our 40th anniversary. I've obtained some new items about the years 1974-77 courtesy of Mike Roberts.

There is a complete, alphabetical list of the  Class of 1977 here.

To start 2017 with, a picture of Bob Wilson (now Professor Wilson of Colorado State University), Simon Gough, Jackie Lewis and Keith Ryan (now with Samten Consulting). Clearly determined to not leave the SU bar despite it being clearly shut!

Did you have a room in Queen Mary Hall? Can you remember how much it cost in 1974....

Rag Week : I can remember going round Knightsbridge past Harrods one year with a QEC float running round the tourists collecting money in a bucket.

And below, a real piece of history. This is a letter from Malcolm Maclaren to Phil Horler (Students Union President) confirming that the Sex Pistols will be appearing at QEC. The date of this gig was 28th November 1975; they also appeared at QEC on 7th June 1977.
