Context

Administrative/Biographical history:

The Archive of the Board of Education Inspectors' Association was named after Jack Kitching who was an HMI (Her Majesty's Inspector of Schools) from 1973-1982 and subsequently Honorary Archivist of the Association. Founded in 1919 as a direct consequence of the application of Whitleyism to the Civil Service, the Association was affiliated to the Association of First Division Civil Servants and its executive acted as the staff side of the Inspectorate Whitley Committee. Its main concerns were therefore salaries, pensions and conditions of service, although it also dealt with the function and activities of HMIs. In 1945 it changed its name to the Association of Her Majesty's Inspectors of Schools and in 1973 it amalgamated with the Association of First Division Civil Servants. It wound up its activities in 1992 on the creation of the Office for Standards in Education.
