- NEILL, A(lexander) S(utherland)
- (1883-1973)UK educationist who gained fame for revolutionary theories about the teaching of children and who cofounded the International School - first on the Continent, then (from 1921) at Summerhill in the UK - toput them into practice. Fictionalized accounts like A Dominie's Log (1915) popularized his arguments, and his sf novel, The Last Man Alive (1938), was read aloud to his pupils. The DISASTER it recounts is readable but unoriginal.JC
