Originally, we assumed that from 1977 onwards the House Captains/Heads of House were those who wrote the House reports for the College magazine - as was the practice in earlier years.  Wrong!  Mike Arnott has written to say:

"Just a small point; In the 'house captains' section, you say you assume that those who wrote the house reports in the college magazine were the house captains, at least during my period. Not the case, I'm afraid. Awfully flattered to see my name on the list, but it would have been a dark time from which Lincoln would have struggled to recover had I been house captain! Can't remember who was, or indeed if we had any. We'd just moved over as the first 6th year into Lincoln after it became a 6th/7th year house, so I don't think we worried very much about stuff like that."

We've now removed the 10 years-worth of entries. [All that typing (sob) - Ed.]

1984-85 ? ?

The 'House Captain system' was declared to be on the way out by the Kett contributors to the 1985 College Magazine.

1986-87     New: Zoe Dickens
1987-88     Fry: Rebecca Silburn & Rebecca Butler (aka Becca and Becki).  It was apparently the first year that there were TWO house captains - Mr Brand couldn't choose!

Footnote 1

"That's before they caught my dorm smoking" - Kevin Westnott

Footnote 2

"Your listing will probably reflect some anomalies, e.g. Dick Leighton Head of Durham. I believe he took over when certain prefects 'lost their stripes,' so he wasn't in the job for the whole year. Records tell little about this sort of thing, although there's plenty of it around!" - Chris Thatcher.

"I have vague memories about a big anti-smoking campaign around the same time (or possibly a bit later). Whether it's my drink befuddled brain or an accurate memory I seem to recall that after a number of people had been caught one weekend, Muz made an announcement in Assembly that anyone caught smoking would not be considered for selection for a school team - a policy that didn't last long as most of the 1st XV were in the next batch caught!" - Charlie (Julian) Smith

[I was in York at the time and we had a few demotions because lads were caught in a pub after an evening trip to the opera in Norwich.  Details here - Ed.]

Footnote 3

This was a turbulent time.  Although the Houses were regrouped as shown in September 1971, only two (Kett and New) were properly integrated in mixed Halls.  See the Family Trees page for more details.
