Postwar photographic education in Britain

Jack Tait has kindly supplied two files which provide important information on British postwar photographic education and some of the people involved:

1. A small file version of the CV instances chapter originally written for Jack's PhD but omitted due to lack of space in the final thesis. It covers his involvement with photographic education with particular reference to creative activity. CV%20Creative%20instances.pdf

2. A list of names with dates where possible of all the people he met who were connected with Photographic Education.Photo%20Education%20staff.pdf

Jack is keen to make these available for researchers and interested parties as he says:

"It might then give some researchers a starting point for their investigations. I propose to keep adding to this as when new material emerges. It might be seen in conjunction with Mike Hallett's reviews which he produced for the BJP which were very extensive. I have tried to make it as accurate as possible and apologies to anyone whose name I have missed out.

The order of names is arbitrary and does not indicate the extent of the individual's contribution. Some contributions are large and significant and others less so but whose part is still important and might fill in gaps in people's research. It is of course up to others to rank order this list and to assign values to the contributions."

BPH is happy to host these files. If researchers make use of the material please credit Jack Tait and BPH.
