Sidling up to Asa Briggs

Visible to anyone in the world

A bust of Asa Briggs graces the Lewes Town Council Chamber after a Cllr Ruth O'Keefe was asked if she could find it a home by the family. I used to see him, in his 90s. on Keere Street or in his garden. I pay my respects at every monthly full council meeting.

Special Relationships

Lord Asa Briggs

@Amazon

Not available as an e-Book (ironically)

Then again, Lord Briggs lives 5 minutes away here in Lewes. I should enquire about a signed hard back copy?

'In 1976 he was created a life peer as Baron Briggs, of Lewes in the County of East Sussex'.

Essential reading for all students of distance learning (and e-learning) to understand the manner in which the OU developed its remit.
