Education in the North was not the first journal to be published by Aberdeen's School of Education. Forty-eight years ago in 1959 (in what was then Aberdeen Training College), two students in the one-year postgraduate course, Tom Laing and Geddes Smith, started a College journal which they called Genesis. They hoped it would be a regular publication, but it did not survive beyond its second issue. Were students more enterprising then than now? In that same year, two other students produced a weekly college newspaper which did come out regularly, under the awful name of Praeceptor. I was clearing out my filing cabinet when I discovered a copy of Genesis from 1959 - possibly the only copy still in existence. (That shows how often I clear out my filing cabinet.)
