Compiled by Clare Bentall
This section brings together contributions made by former staff and students to the 75th anniversary celebration of the former Education and International Development Group (EID), held on the 23rd November 2002 in the Institute of Education, in which they reflect on their experiences. These contributions are either speeches made on the day of the celebration or written messages sent by those who could not attend. Together they provide insight into life, both academic and other, in the department over 75 years and have been grouped to give a flavour of the different eras:
These contributions reflect the changes over the years in the focus of the courses in the department and also provide more personal experiences and memories to supplement the historical records included in the previous section on this CD.
A Tribute to Bill Dodd CMG and Margaret Richards MBE
Bill Dodd, a former lecturer in Education in
Tropical Areas (ETA), played an important role in the organisation of the 75th
anniversary event. He died in February 2004, before the completion of this CD
project. We remember his enthusiasm, wisdom and his unstinting devotion to
education in developing countries over the decades.
