Administrative/Biographical history:

Evening classes in subjects as diverse as English, History, Divinity, Drawing, French, Mathematics and Chemistry commenced at King's College in 1848. Teaching remained the responsibility of the separate faculties to which classes were appended administratively, until around 1907 when a distinct department emerged covering all evening class education at King's College. The department was discontinued upon the outbreak of war in 1939, although some few classes were transferred to Birkbeck College.


Scope and content/abstract:

The records of the Evening Classes Department at King's College London consist of staff committee minute books, 1858-1939, and minutes of the Joint Committee of King's College London and the Carpenters' Company, 1890-1912.
