Following the highly successful visit, hosted by the Whitechapel Society, of a group of Psychology & Criminology students from The College of St Rose, Albany, New York in May 2019, Dr Nancy Dorr and Dr Tina Lane brought another group to London arriving on 29th Feb 2020.
Many of you will have followed the daily blog on the society’s facebook page and will have seen the programme of events and all those people who worked so hard to make their visit such a success.
Thanks go to the staff of The Chamberlain Hotel, the staff of The City of London Police Museum, the staff at The Hoop & Grapes, The Crutched Friar, The George in Southwark and The Cheshire Cheese.
I really must thank the following people for the outstanding contribution they made to the week; all of them going way over and above the call of duty!
Lindsay Siviter, Bill Beadle, Steve Blomer, Chris Jones, Adam Wood, Elizabeth Yardley, Drew Gray, Steve Rattey, Dan Benson and Duncan Baker (MP for North Norfolk).
Like last year, the week culminated in the students giving their presentations to a WS audience. My thanks to those who came to The Cheshire Cheese on the Friday evening and the positive reinforcement you gave to these young people.
I wouldn’t normally print an email from a member, but on this occasion (with her permission), I will. Christine really did sum it up!
Dear Sue,
Just a quick email to say a very big ‘thank you’ for inviting me to the American student’s presentation evening. I was so impressed with the work that had gone into each presentation, they were all thoroughly researched, and each theory was very convincingly put forward.
It was so refreshing to have new light on the case which highlighted certain aspects that are of interest to me. What hard working, diligent and inspirational young people they are! It was a pleasure to meet them and wish them well in the rest of their studies.
Thank you all for an excellent evening!
Kind regards,
Christine Osborne.

We are already planning the 2021 visit!
