We hear that the governors at Ruskin College will be meeting with the College Principal tomorrow (that is, Tuesday 9 October), and that the future of the remaining archives will be discussed. No doubt there will be considerable pressure on the Principal, considering the petition of more than 2,500 signatures (and, strangely, more than 4,500 facebook ‘likes’), letter in the Guardian, coverage in the TLS and the Telegraph, and Hilda Kean’s article.
Ruskin’s chair of governors is David Norman, a retired trade union officer from the Communication Workers Union. HWO readers may want to contact him at email@example.com. Ruskin’s Principal, Audrey Mullender, can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A list of the full membership of the Governing Executive is available on the Ruskin website.
