Meet the Hertfordians

Throughout its history Hertford College has seen many influential figures pass through its doors. Some, like William Tyndale, sent shockwaves through their own eras; others continue to shape the world in which we live, in sometimes obvious and other times more subtle ways. Here you can find just a small selection of some of these people, learn how they came to Hertford, and how their time here has helped them on their journey through life.

Hertfolk is our ongoing storytelling project, which interviews all sorts of alumni about their experience at Hertford and where life took them afterwards, as well as talking to current members of the college. Our Co-education and 50 years of access portraits introduce you to the alumni and academics whose faces hung on the walls in Hall in two very special anniversary exhibitions.
