Vintage Exeter College Oxford framed pennant
Vintage Exeter College Oxford framed pennant framed in walnut frame. It measures 35 inches long and is in a 43 x 23.5 x 1 inch frame. Excellent condition. Still situated in its original location in Turl Street, Exeter College was founded in 1314 by Walter de Stapeldon of Devon, Bishop of Exeter and later treasurer to Edward II, as a school to educate clergy. During its 1st century, it was known as Stapeldon Hall and was significantly smaller, with just twelve to fourteen students. The college grew significantly from the 15th century onward, and began offering rooms to its students. The College motto is "Floreat Exon.", meaning "Let Exeter Flourish". Until 1979 the college did not allow women students, but in 1993 Exeter College became the first of the former all-male colleges to elect a woman, Marilyn Butler, as its Rector. When Butler's tenure expired in October 2004, the college elected another woman Frances Cairncross, former Senior Editor of The Economist as Rector.
