The institutional records of King's College London are among the richest Higher Education records in London.
They include minute books, correspondence of senior officers, records relating to students and staff, College publications and photographs of not just King’s but institutions that have merged with or were created by it, including King's College School, Strand School, Queen Elizabeth College and Chelsea College.
There are also substantial records relating to the history of medicine and nursing, including King's College Hospital, to Guy's and St Thomas' Medical Schools, the King's College Nurses' League and the Royal British Nurses' Association.
Additionally, there are collections of significant organisations or pressure groups, such as literary reviews (Adam International Review and Modern Poetry in Translation), and the archives of the League for Democracy in Greece and the Greek Relief Fund.
