Image: Three generations of Birmingham alumni (l-r) Patricia Stark (BCom Social Studies, 1954), Lee Bonham (BSc Physics, 1980), Kathryn Bonham (BSc Psychology, 2010), Kenneth Stark (MSc Electrical Engineering, 1955)
One family is Birmingham through and through, with three generations of graduates - grandfather, grandmother, father and daughter.
Patricia and Kenneth Stark met on the tennis courts and then at the Union hop later that evening, little knowing their family connection with the University would endure for more than five decades. The couple's son Lee Bonham gained his Masters from Birmingham 25 years later, and granddaughter Kathryn Bonham became the family's fourth Birmingham graduate in 2010.
Could your family be the next to hand the Birmingham tradition down through generations?
