In 1966, Dr John Horton joined the staff at Bradford University library on a salary of £875 a year. He stayed at the Uni for the rest of his working life, eventually becoming University Librarian. John shares his memories of our first Vice-Chancellor, Ted Edwards, and our first Chancellor, Sir Harold Wilson, in the first of a series of videos created by staff and students to celebrate the University’s 50th anniversary.
