A Normal Life- a view of the history of Bangor Normal College
What was Normal about the Normal College? Who where the abnormal ones? There's an opportunity to hear a bit of the history of the Normal College at a public lecture in the Conference Room, Hen Goleg, Bangor University, Colege Road, Bangor at 5.15 on Friday 13 March.
The Lecture will provide a glimpse at the history through the eyes f tree former members of staff. Professor Gareth Roberts, the College's last Principal will be evaluating the overall contribution made by the College, Miss Menai Williams will be giving the view of a former member of staff and warden and Dr Tudor Ellis will sketch the student experiences through the years.
The Normal Colege was established in 1858, a little over a century and a half ago. It integrated with the University in 1996. The College has made a significant contribution to education and culture in Wales.
A host of former students have contributed their recollections about their experiences at the College and the intention is to publish those memories in a book with the same title Bywyd Normal (A Normal Life).
The Lecture has been organized by the University of Wales Guild of Graduates and is open to the public.
