Naam van de archiefvormer


Albert Mansbridge, the founder of the Workers' Educational Association, was born in Gloucester on 10 January 1876 and educated at the Battersea Grammar School. He founded the Association in 1903 and remained First Secretary until 1915, extending its operations to Australia. Until his death at Torquay on 22 August 1952, Mansbridge was associated with numerous socialist, co-operative, and church organizations, although education always remained his main interest. In his later years he was President of the World Association for Adult Education. His publications include An Adventure in Working Class Education (1920) and his autobiography, The Trodden Road (1940). A pamphlet about Mansbridge by Bernard Jennings of the University of Leeds is contained in Mansbridge's Master File in Archives and Research Collections. This collection was assembled by his friend Leonard Clark. Clark, an educator, author, editor and poet was born on 1 August 1905 in St. Peter Port, Guernsey. He was made inspector of schools with the Ministry of Education in 1936. He died in London in 1981.
