Administrative history:
Frank Stephen Granger (1864-1936) was born in Nottingham. From 1882 until 1885 he was employed in the office of architect Godwin (FSA) in London, and in 1886 became an associate of the Royal Institute of British Architects, taking his Master of Arts degree at London University in the same year. In 1887 he was appointed lecturer in Latin, Greek and Philosophy at Nottingham University College and, after receiving the degree of Doctor of Literature at London in 1892, became Professor of Classics and Philosophy in 1893. He resigned chair of Classics in 1935 but continued to lecture in philosophy from 1914 until his retirement in 1935 as Vice-Principal of the University. It was in this capacity that he played host to Albert Einstein during the latter's visit to Nottingham in June 1930.
Granger's varied interests are reflected in his published works, which include 'The Psychological Basis of Fine Art' (1887); 'Vitruvius' (1931-34); 'The Legal Status of Labour in the New Testament' (1933); and 'Longinus: a Treatise on the Sublime' (1935).

Contents:
The collection encompasses aspects of F. S. Granger's personal, academic and official life. It contains correspondence with family members and colleagues; papers relating to his career and published works; antiquarian papers; and records of his involvement in developments and activities of University College Nottingham. The latter series includes illustrations of the opening of new buildings in 1928 and of a visit by princes of Hyderabad in 1931, as well as letters about arrangements for Albert Einstein's visit in 1930. Granger's interest in the Nottingham miller and mathematician George Green is reflected in several historical items.
