Lawrence the student

There are few references in the University archives to the student experiences of D.H. Lawrence or his work as a student.

A fascinating record survives in the official assessment of Lawrence as a potential school teacher in the University of Nottingham Day Training College student register for 1906-1908. His intellectual gifts were clearly appreciated, but there was anxiety too that his personality might not suit all classrooms.
