IDD 50 faces #01 - Professor Richard Batley

IDD 50 faces #01 - Professor Richard Batley
Description
I joined IDD in November 1978, at roughly the same time as Nick Devas and Andrew Nickson. This was a time of expansion of IDD (then the Development Administration Group – DAG), backed by a 'development fund' that Ken Davey had won from the University of Birmingham. I am forever grateful that Ken who was then the director of DAG took time out to visit me at the University of Sussex and encouraged me to apply.
