Abstract: As was the case ten years ago, the more than three thousand members of the Wright Community are all deeply appreciative of the efforts of the many who have given generously of their time, recollections and ongoing fellowship to make this book a proud reality. Like its earlier manifestation, Wright on Education (2006) - and much of which is still 'very evident' in this revised volume - it is a combination of record, reflection, of a willing sharing, and a pride which indeed 'shines through' - as our College motto ever enjoins us. As the compiler and sharer of this further work, I am guided by the 'Editorial' of the Annual Records of Peterhouse, Cambridge's oldest college - and the one I went to as a research student in 1964, a departure from here being then marked by the College's kidnapping the Night Train for Sydney - to recall my then strange feelings at my really but temporary departure from this home that had by then become mine, my residence in Upper Gamma. As the frontispiece indicates, Wright has lost four former and much respected Masters since 2006, and so many of our earliest students are nearing or have passed the four score tally. At the last major physical Reunion, we were homeless, but our original location was unoccupied, and so there was to be waged a long campaign to have the College re-founded, but not relocated - a process also recurring in medieval times for several Oxford Colleges. In a like fashion, the present writer had to be reassured in 1996 that Wright would rise again - as had other foundations variously truncated or bereft of their original site.
