May the Powers be with you

  • Comment
There is much to admire in Alan Powers – architectural historian, writer, academic and saviour of Pollock's Toy Museum in London.

But it is still a little surprising to stumble across The Alan Powers Appreciation Society on social-networking site Facebook. Evidently set up by his students at the University of Greenwich, it is described as being 'in adoration of the most amazing lecturer in existance (sic)'.

Discussions include where the genially fogeyish lecturer buys his clothes (Gap apparently), and whether he could beat Superman in a fight.

There are 55 members of the group including, we note, one Kieran Long, editor of the AJ.
