Having lived all his life beside the Bristol Channel, Professor Stead was always fascinated by the industrial hinterland of which his parents were natives. When he joined the History Department at Swansea University he came under the influence of two professors who made it clear that an essential part of his career should be devoted to communicating with the adult education classes and culture of the wider community in Wales. At the same time he was being taught by lecturers who were fascinated by the political programmes and values that had been generated by that society. An academic career then was to be forged both in the classroom and on the road. Such was the very nature of Swansea University in those years.
