We were privileged to be joined at Campbell College last week by Billy's grandson, John Coffin, who travelled from his home in Oxford to share original material, photographs and stories about his grandfather with the College's 'Men Behind the Glass' team:
 

"I wanted to thank you for your hospitality. I really did enjoy our discussions, learning so much about the College. I do hope that you felt that I had been helpful in filling out more information on my grandfather.
Once again, many thanks.
All the best.
John"

If you have material you would like to share with the Campbell College 'Men Behind the Glass' team, please contact Alumni Relations Suzy McIlveen smcilveen@campbellcollege.co.uk to arrange a suitable time to (re)visit.
