Vintage pics show how crazy life at Warwick uni was 50 years ago
It was a simpler time
This year is Warwick’s 50th anniversary and to mark the occasion Professor Michael Shattock, a former registrar, has published a book investigating the impact of the university on its surrounding environment.
The Impact of a University on its Environment, The University of Warwick and its Community After Fifty Years seeks to discover how the university has shaped the local community and industry, and whether it has stayed true to the aspirations of its creation.
For the book’s publication, archive pictures from the university’s first years as an institution have been unearthed.
Of the book, Michael said: “I hope what has been published will be helpful in showing the contribution a university can make to the local economic, educational and cultural environment.”
The Impact of a University on its Environment is available in the Warwick Bookshop.
