In the late summers of 1914 and 1939 the Oxford Delegacy found itself planning for a new academic year as war was declared. Peripatetic educational programmes, administratively complex and dependent on the goodwill and contributions of many separate institutions and individuals, were particularly vulnerable to disruption. It is hardly surprising that uncertainty pervaded the correspondence and reports of the early months of both wars. The first effect of the declaration of war on 4 August 1914 was physical: the delegacy lost its home when the examination schools were requisitioned as a military hospital. With lecturers and tutors engaged in the services or on war-related work, there were opportunities for new teachers as well. The attitude of the tutorial classes movement was rather different. The expectancy that flowed through the adult education movement from 1916 developed into two separate educational campaigns with roots in Oxford.
