David Bramley was the first Head of the Department of Industrial Administration at Birmingham Central Technical College (now Aston University) between 1947 and 1959. David became recognised for his pioneering works in Industrial Management Education at the University.
After a long and fruitful life, David passed away in July 2010, leaving a significant endowment in his will to ABS to set up the Frank Woollard David Bramley Scholarship in memory of the close collaboration of these two colleagues.
The gift is used for the purpose of creating or enhancing a travel scholarship which will promote or enhance the exchange of experiences for travelling teaching staff using the case study method. His family also donated all his academic papers to ABS so they can be archived and used for reference.The David Bramley Collection is a small collection of David’s lectures, presentations, jointly authored publications and correspondences.
“Without the Frank Woollard David Bramley Scholarship I may not have been able to meet the scholars I have met and sown the seeds for such exciting research next year. I am extremely grateful." Professor Stephanie Decker
