Manning, Brian

John Leffman wrote “I read last week, in the Times, an obituary of Brian Manning, a History Sixth contemporary of mine. He won the Brackenbury Scholarship to Balliol. Brian studied under Christopher Hill at Balliol and, it seems, became a Marxist orientated but highly respected historian of the 17th Century. He held a professorship prior to his retirement, having held a chair at (inter alia), Manchester University”.

While at Hurst, he was a House Prefect, School Prefect and House Captain of Shield.
