'Physical Education Questionnaire'

Scope and Content

Contains replies from 22 respondents who attended school between the years 1925-1978, with the majority of the replies (19) from those who attended school during the inter-war years.

Administrative / Biographical History

Erica Burgon (née Bache), a former student of Bedford Physical Training College (1943-1946), canvassed opinions and information (via a questionnaire) from other former students re their attitude and experience of physical education as taught in schools which they attended as pupils. Information gathered in this exercise was later used by Sheila Fletcher in her research for Women First: The Female Tradition in English Physical Education 1880-1980 .
