R.B. McDowell is Emeritus Fellow and former Professor of History at Trinity College, Dublin. This entertaining memoir encompasses the experiences of generations of Trinity graduates, where he was legendary as Junior Dean, for his brilliant oratory and eccentricities, and as an eminent historian. Born in Belfast in 1913, McDowell describes his boyhood and family; student life; pre- and postwar Trinity and Dublin; his appointment as Junior Dean (1956-69); and his subsequent academic life during the transitional decades of the 1930s to the 1980s and beyond. McDowell's memoir will be of interest not only to anyone connected with Trinity College but also to anyone interested in Irish history, identities and social life during the twentieth century and into the twenty-first.

Hardcover, viii + 184pgs, illustrations. As new.
