Other notable officers[edit]

The 3rd Marquess of Salisbury was Union Secretary in Michaelmas 1848.

Harold Macmillan was Secretary of the Union in Hilary 1914, then Junior Treasurer (elected unopposed, which was then very unusual) in Trinity 1914; but for the war he would “almost certainly” have been President.[64]

In fiction[edit]

  • Simon Kerslake (early 1950s), protagonist of the Jeffrey Archer novel First Among Equals. Invites sitting Prime Minister Winston Churchill to propose motion during Eights Week that "This House Would Rather be a Commoner than a Lord". His future rival, (Lord) Charles Seymour listens from the floor and resolves to enter politics also. Archer himself was elected to Standing Committee for one term in 1965.[citation needed]
