George Walker (1960, Chemistry) publishes Glimpses of Utopia

George Walker (1960, Chemistry) has published Glimpses of Utopia: a lifetime’s education.

Dr Walker was director general of the International Baccalaureate and visiting professor in the University of Bath. In Glimpses of Utopia, a collection of autobiographical essays, he describes some defining moments in his distinguished career in education. In schools and in the harvest fields of Essex and the Paleolithic cave at Lascaux; behind the Iron Curtain in Czechoslovakia; on the alpine ski slopes; in the concert hall and in the footsteps of Cecil Rhodes in southern Africa; in Baghdad and in Bosnia, there have been many unexpected lessons to learn.

Among the essays are reminiscences on Dr Walker’s time at Exeter College.
