Oral History recordings
In 2012 the University of Hertfordshire celebrated its 60th anniversary as a provider of further and higher education for the people of Hertfordshire and beyond. As part of those celebrations, 28 former and current members of staff and students were interviewed by oral historian Verusca Calabria and recalled their time as the Technical College (1952) became a Polytechnic (1969) and then a University (1992).
Amongst them was the late Sir Norman Lindop, who became Principal of the College of Technology in 1966 and was the first Director of Hatfield Polytechnic.
