AdminHistoryJohn William Tibble (1901-72) was born at Skelton in Cleveland, Yorkshire, and was educated at Guisborough Grammar School and Leeds University where he graduated with first class honours in English Language and Literature in 1924 and later took the degrees of M.A. and M.Ed. He taught at Deacons School, Peterborough 1924-32 and then spent 14 years as a Lecturer in Education at the University College of the South-West, Exeter. He was appointed Professor of Education at University College Leicester in 1946 and retired in 1966. He continued to be active in the field of education after his retirement from Leicester, becoming the first secretary to the Universities Council for the Education of Teachers. In this capacity he was particularly involved in the preparation of the James Report. He also edited a Student's Library of Education series, continued his own research and publication and served as an external examiner.
During his time at Leicester Tibble was responsible for building up the University's School of Education. It was under his leadership that the department and Institute of Education were amalgamated into a single unit. He also worked closely with the Association of Teachers in Colleges and Departments of Education, as its chairman and as editor of its journal, Education for Teaching. With his wife Anne, whom he married in 1928, he undertook pioneering studies on the life and poetry of John Clare.
