Three former professors of adult education, and the current chair, from the University of Glasgow were amongst some 100 friends and colleagues who celebrated the 80th birthday of Professor Peter Jarvis, the eminent adult educator, known to all in the field. Professor Lalage Bown, Emeritus Professor of Adult Education at Glasgow eloquently spoke of his contributions especially in the international sphere.
Seen her with Professor Bown are her successors, Professor Maria Slowey, Professor Julia Preece and Professor Mike Osborne.
Professor Jarvis is seen here with his wife, son and daughter.
We wish him many more healthy and productive years.
