Barham Dinner for Graduates

Linton, near Cambridge 1860
In 1776 William Mason and the Master of Pembroke, James Brown each gave £50 in memory of their friend Thomas Gray. Mason wished for the money to be invested until such time as the College could afford to re-build one whole side of either of the quadrangles or a new building next to the Garden.

Stokes Society Centenary Dinner

George Gabriel Stokes (1819-1903)
The Stokes Society is Pembroke College's Natural Sciences Society, named after George Garbriel Stokes.
Stokes entered Pembroke College, Cambridge, in 1837. In Stokes's second year at Cambridge he began to be coached by William Hopkins, a famous Cambridge coach who played a more important role than the lecturers. In 1841 Stokes graduated as Senior Wrangler (the top First Class degree) in the Mathematical Tripos and he was the first Smith's prizeman. Pembroke College immediately gave him a Fellowship.
