In the final talk for the Spring 2015 AA Collections / AAXX100 lecture series, the spotlight is turned on the context of the student body of the AA in the 1940s and 1950s. Patrick Zamarian examines the ethos of the AA in the 1940s and 1950s in his talk, entitled ‘Moth-Eaten Old Students and Noisy Little Schoolboys – The AA in the Post-war Era’. The lecture, on 19th May, 1915 provides context for the two earlier AA Collections / AAXX100 talks on Jane Drew and Elizabeth Benjamin, revealing how the growth of the school and students’ activism influenced the operations and direction of the school. Patrick’s talk draws upon his own current research amongst the AA Collections.
