Fond memories of Graham Adamson

Phillip Mallpress

Firstly, may I say how privileged I am to receive the Reporter and how I value reading it. I have what seems a lifetime's connection with the University and it is splendid to be able to keep in touch.

Fairly recently I was sorry to read in the Yorkshire Post of the death of Graham Adamson. I did my Diploma of Education year in 1950-51, specialising in PE, and it was entirely due to Graham's skill as a teacher and his complete dedication to his profession that I was able to qualify as a teacher.

He was a good friend too, and was one of those completely "unflappable" men that is always good to know. I haven't seen or heard from him since he brought students to the school where I taught in the 1960s.

Many people world-wide will closely associate him with 'circuit-training' and I, and I am sure many others, will remember him fondly. Memories of good times are always precious!
