THE LEGACY OF QUINTIN HOGG AND THE POLYTECHNIC, 1864-1992
In February 1864 the nineteen year old Quintin Hogg began his work amongst the ‘ragged’ boys of Covent Garden. He could never have anticipated that within 20 years he would be running an educational, social and sporting institute for 1,000 young men on Regent Street, or that some 130 years later the same institution would be awarding its own degrees as the University of Westminster. Drawing on the extensive and previously unexplored archives of the University of Westminster,Educating Mind, Body and Spirit presents a series of essays on the origins and development of the Polytechnic movement, and the formidable legacy of its founder, Quintin Hogg. It tells the story of Hogg’s institution and its founder, from Victorian London, through two world wars and the social upheaval of the 1960s and 1970s, to the creation of the University of Westminster in 1992.
Richly illustrated throughout with images from the University’s Archive, Educating Mind, Body and Spirit is a fitting tribute to the life and legacy of Quintin Hogg and the institute he created. Although the name polytechnic is no longer in use in UK higher education, its heritage is still a celebrated part of the University of Westminster’s ethos and mission today.
