First Graduation in 1921


A recent addition to the Somerville photo archive is this photo of Katherine Guthrie Wood who was a student at Somerville between 1914 and 1918.  She was amongst the first women students to receive their degrees in 1921 when the university regulations were changed to admit women as full members of the university.  Miss Wood married Sir Richard Robert Ludlow in 1919 (also pictured) whom she met whilst at Oxford.  Many thanks go to Ms Angela Ridge who contacted me with  photos of her grandmother and who has kindly given permission to use this one
