Inspiring Old Albanians is a miscellany of famous former pupils and others associated with St Albans School, and include OAs such as Stephen Hawking, Sir Tim Rice, Nicolas Breakspear and many more. Some of the names will be recognisable, others historic and even surprising, but all of them in one form or another embody the precept of the School prayer in that they have "derived thy blessing of religious education and most useful learning and used these to become profitable members of Thy Church and Commonwealth".
We are extremely grateful to everybody that helped make this book a reality. A big thanks goes to OA Robin Ollington and Frank Lee of Lodge Graphics, who researched, expanded and created the printed form in which we see them today. Thanks also go to the families of OAs who have kindly provided information and photographs of those featured, amongst them the family of Neville Cook without whom the project would not have been possible. We are also very grateful to Noel Cassidy and the School's 2017 Publication Team, who are to be congratulated on their time consuming involvement with the book's content and presentation.
