Master of Peterhouse, Bridget Kendall, MBE
On 1 July 2016 Bridget Kendall took office as Master of Peterhouse – the first female Master in the history of the College, seen here with two previous Masters, Professor Sir John Meurig Thomas (1993-2002) and Professor Adrian Dixon (2008-2016). She writes:
It is now just over a week since I took over as Master of Peterhouse, and I would like to say thank you to everyone in the College who has gone out of their way to make me feel so welcome, both Fellows, staff, students and alumni. I am thrilled and humbled to be taking on this role. And I look forward to following Professor Adrian Dixon’s lead in making this College as friendly, welcoming, inclusive and supportive as possible, especially in these challenging times.
