Chris Mullin honoured

At the recent degree ceremony at the University of Hull, Chris Mullin – who graduated from the University in 1969 with a law degree – was awarded an honorary doctorate.  I was his presenting officer.  I variously drew on extracts from his diaries, not least his references to the university and his visit last year, when he noticed that the campus, and the students, had not changed that much since his day.  The students, if anything, looked a tad more respectable.

I reproduce one of the official photographs.  For the avoidance of doubt, I’m the one on the left (geographically speaking).

    Lord Norton,
    Coincidentally I attended Law School in the UK in 1969. However in my case only in the sense that my father was studyung in the graduate level program at Kings London and sometimes my mother and I met him there (thus attending) before going out for tea. There is no sign anyone will ever officially recognize that much less honor it — oh well.

    Ever the (self) publicist.
