A memory submitted by James Cribbs, Class of 1980

Dr. Jim Hopkins teaching a class about Victorian and Edwardian England. He came into class on the day a national election was held in Britain (in which Margaret Thatcher was eventually elected) wearing what he called a “worker’s cap” to show his solidarity with the Labour Party. He might have lost the election but he was a great teacher and I loved that class, I still have some of the books that he assigned us to read.
