    100345 George McCreedy Price at Stanborough College, 1924. On the back of this photo is a clipping from the Messenger (14/15 1978) as follows: WORLD CHAMPION OF CREATIONISM Among the most celebrated of the world's Creationists was the late Professor George McCready Price (left in the picture). He is standing with Pastor Lewis H Christian, then president of the Church's European Division. The date: 1924. The place: Stanborough College, Stanborough Park, Watford where Prof. Price was College principal, and also teacher of geology. Brother Price, a Canadian, died in 1963 aged 93. He early accepted the Advent truth and then entered the literature ministry. Throughout his long life and ministry, he was an indomitable defender of the faith, and a relentless opponent of evolution. He was known and respected throughout the scientific world. He wrote many books on geology from a Biblical basis. Some titles are: God's Two Books, The New Geology, If You Were the Creator, Genesis Vindicated, Common-sense Geology, and many others. While serving the British College he engaged in a widely reported public debate on the theme of Creation versus Evolution, in London's Central Hall, with the celebrated Joseph McCabe ex-Roman Catholic, ex-monk, ex-priest turned atheistic evolutionist. Mrs L J Ponder (Bible Instructor and literature-evangelist) kindly sent us the above picture. She identifies the lady in the background as Mrs Howard, Stanborough College matron. Information for new members: Stanborough College was the predecessor of Newbold College, and is now the Stanborough School. Few men have done as much for the cause of Creationism in a time of tremendous challenge, than College principal George McCready Price. He knew that the whole structure of Christian doctrine is validated by the truth of Creation and the Fall. Those who were students in Professor Price's time remember him as a thoroughly dedicated Christian, and a thoroughly strict disciplinarian of the no-nonsense type.

    100364 Stanborough School pupils, 1924. Clipping on the back of this photo as follows: CO-OPERATION WITH CHRIST Here's a refreshing reminder of the heyday of British Imperialism days of stability, good behaviour, safe society, and a general earnestness. Appropriate, too, in this Adventist Education Year, 1978. These are Stanborough School pupils, 1924 the year of Wembley's gigantic Empire Exhibition. Here are demure girls like peas in a pod in standard gear white blouses, blue gym slips, black stockings, flat shoes, generally bobbed hair a sartorial uniformity common throughout Britain which served as a salubrious leveller. The boys, too, with uniform caps and badges, school blazers, school ties, grey shorts, long socks. The uniformity created respect for the school and had strong disciplinary significance. Regrettably, and in subservience to the modern zeitgeist, almost anything goes today no matter what the sphere. 'Do your thing' is the modern guiding principle. Mrs Emma Balderstone (nee Pinch) sent us the picture. She's on it, of course, with several others who are well known. First row (from left): Headmistress Miss A E West (saintly and strict), Clarice Throssell, Irene Otten, Ivy Leach, Elsie Throssell (now wife of Pastor Hector Bull), Frances Hayes, Amy Evensen (wife of Ron Coombs of VOP fame as King's Herald Quartet second tenor), Emma Pinch (wife of Albert Balderstone), ?, and Miss Eva Hyde (teacher). Middle row: Gladys Willis (now Mrs Clarke, mother of Nigel and Roger), the Stanborough Press window shows above her head; last two on the middle row are Doreen Swinford and Mona Evensen. Tallest on back row is Todd Murdoch (see 'Messenger' No. 23, page 3, for his story under the 'Historic Picture' it's good). Christ 'gave Himself for the uplifting of the fallen and the sinful. Can we imagine an education higher than that to be gained in co-operation with Him?' (Counsels to Teachers, page 35). R D Vine, Editor. 1924 Stanborough Press - photographic archive 73k
