Wild duck chases

October 25, 2012

Poppleton University's appointment of Henrik Ibsen (The Poppletonian, 11 October) reminded me of another unlikely university appearance from the early 1970s. On the request of a student, a public-address request was put out at the University of Exeter's Devonshire House for "Mr Jean-Paul Sartre to please go to the Porters' Desk". The porter behind the voice, the inestimable Steve Jefferys, later laughed with the rest of us.
