but one of the things that niggles me most about LinkedIn is its refusal to recognise that some of us may have studied at institutions that have since closed – or in the case of Bedford College London, been forcibly closed. My education record on LinkedIn is thus skewed and inaccurate.
I read English at Bedford from 1967-1970 and was taught by a star Faculty- as Yeats puts it in another context ‘All the Olympians – a thing not seen again.’
Indeed, one of the best things that ever happened to me was failing my Oxford entrance exam – Bedford was my 2nd choice, and suited me admirably.
Here’s a picture of The Holme, where the English Department lived in the days we thought would never end. *Sigh.*
