Sheila Fletcher Interviews

Administrative / Biographical History

In the course of her research for Women First: The Female Tradition in English Physical Education 1880-1980 (1984), Dr Sheila Fletcher conducted a number of interviews with former students and staff of Bedford College of Physical Education during the period 1979-1982. See HRef7/6 for further details of her research.

The original interviews were recorded on audio cassette tapes. In c.2010 the recordings were transferred onto CD-ROMs and partial transcripts were made of some of the interviews. The listening quality of some of the recordings is poor, most likely due to a degradation of the cassette tape over the intervening years.
