From Zinc Shed School to Harvard University Graduate 2


This video tells the story of my childhood poverty, ill-health and being unable to attend high school. Amazingly I managed to graduate from Harvard University.

 

 


About Peter Muir

To save money for high school fees, I started working at age eleven teaching extra lessons at my elementary school. I entered high school in third form and came first for Jamaica in the 1955 British Senior Cambridge exams. Taking the US SAT exams I ranked in the top 3% in the world. Several US universites offered scholarships and I graduated from Harvard in1961. I married Beverley Hanson in 1965 and I have 2 children, Susan and David.
