Merton College of Oxford, founded 1264 by Walter de Merton, Chancellor of England, was the largest and wealthiest of the early colleges. The college boasts some rooms called “The Queen’s Rooms” used by Queens of England when visiting the university. They were so called after Queen Henrietta (consort of King Charles I) stayed there in 1643 - 44 during the Civil War. Some famous sons: Lord Randolph Churchill (Statesman), Dr. Mandell Creighton (Bishop of London 1897), T.S. Eliot (Poet), Sir Basil Blackwell (Blackwells of Oxford, Booksellers and Publishers).

Carefully untie your tie when you remove it. It should come off the same way it went on, in reverse. Pulling the knot loose will tear the neckpiece, the third part of the tie construction. Hang it in your closet, unless it is a knit, which you should roll. A silk tie will lose its wrinkles if it is given rest in your closet and the help of gravity. Ties cannot be dry-cleaned, cannot be washed, and cannot be pressed. Either cover your tie when you eat, or prepare to replace it when it is soiled.
