King's College Archive Centre has just created an online exhibition about the Amalgamation Club. This club brought all the clubs at King's under one subscription, and was probably the precursor to the King's College Student Union (KCSU). It included the Boat Club, the Rugby Club, the Cricket Club and the Reading Room (now the student bar).

The exhibition includes an overview of the Amalgamation Club as well as more in-depth coverage of the Boat Club and Reading Room. It includes slideshows of contemporary documents, including photos of famous alumni such as Alan Turing (Boat Club) and Rupert Brooke (Rugby Club).
