After my recent post about Toddington log books, a friend reminded me about the school log books project being undertaken by the Family and Community Historical Research Society. The project is aimed at studying the light that school log books throw on the relationship between schools and the local community. The Toddington log book clearly demonstrated how school and community were intertwined and, incidentally, recorded events in the community that may otherwise have been lost, so there should be a lot that can be teased out of Beds log books about the history of daily life in the county.
I wonder if there is anyone working on Beds school log books for the project?
