The 31 club was a small group formed by the Honours Classics graduates at the University in 1931, to “perpetuate friendships made by the members while they were Classical students at Edinburgh University”. They first met in May 1931 and thereafter regularly for the next four years.
A small reunion in 1966 is next minuted, then 1991. By the time of the meeting in 1991, six ‘survivors’ are named, including the late Prof. William Montgomery Watt (1909-2006).
We have just taken custody of the archives of the club.
