--Reflections - Scarborough Library Review Winter 2011

About the Author

John Rushton was in the Royal Navy from the age of sixteen to nineteen. For several years he worked in factories. As a young adult, he studied at University College and London School of Economics. His part time work included barrel organ singing, time and motion study and carrying a sandwich board. He came to Ryedale as tutor organiser for the Workers' Educational Association in 1959 and developed local studies in several towns and villages in north-east Yorkshire. His annual local history exhibition at Pickering led to the formation of the Beck Isle Museum. For many years he was well known for his appearance at Pickering Carnivals in outrageous costumes. He ran a newspaper column, wrote village pantomimes and the Pickering pageants. John has lectured in recent years for the WEA and Hull University. He was awarded the MBE in 2005 for "service to the community". He has just retired after several years as President of the 'Scarborough Archaeological and Historical Society". John is an active supporter of the enthusiasts who have formed the new Scarborough Maritime Heritage Centre.
