As part of our 125th anniversary celebrations in the 2020/21 academic year, we asked the LSE community to get in touch and share their photos and memories. Students, alumni and LSE staff members were all invited to make a permanent contribution to the history of the School, for our Digital Library. This collection spans multiple decades and features photographs from our community, showcasing personal milestones as well as important cultural moments at LSE.
Photograph from page 2 of the Sunday Times in 1989. We formed a campaign for degrees in order to bring an end to dispute dispute between the government and the Association of university teachers which threatened to disrupt the setting and marking of exams in that year. I am at the front in glasses. Also featured in the photograph in the background on the right is Michiel van Hulton he went on to become a Dutch MEP and leader of the Dutch Labour Party. I studied monetary economics between 1986 and 1999 and Chris Pissarides was my tutor.
