Robert Singleton was the first Warden of Radley College, and can be considered its co-founder. He kept a comprehensive diary of the early history of the college, beginning on March 5th 1847, when the idea to found it was first decided on.

This project aims to publish his diary day-by-day, working from the originals and the transcripts held by Radley College, and to provide annotations where possible.
