Mrs. Sheila Radice

  Mrs. Sheila Radice, who died yesterday in a Cheltenham nursing home, was for many years an assistant editor of The Times Educational Supplement.   She was a regular contributor to it's columns but her services were not confined to the act of writing for she had an aptitude for editorial organization which was of the greatest value to the supplement and it's creator and editor, G. S. Freeman (1879-1938).
  She was the younger daughter of Colonel Alister Jamieson, I.A., F.G.S., and came of old army families on both sides.   In her own generation the tradition had been kept up; her brother, Major G. A. Jamieson, died of wounds received in Mesopotamia in 1916; her sister was the wife of Major General Sir Jocelyn Percy, of Albanian Fame.   Like many junior members of Service families, she had passed her time between England and stations abroad, and (like her father before her) had, wherever she was, written for the press.
  In 1913, her marriage to Captain A. H. Radice (Later Lieutenant-Colonel A. H. Radice, D.S.O.) fixed her at home, and in 1914 came the war.   Her coming to Printing House Square, early in the year of the Armistice, was, by way of war work, the war having depleted newspaper staffs.   What she found there - in particular the tradition
of teamwork by many experts, and no claiming of credit by this expert or that - attracted her strongly.   She had a family to educate, and after the war, when many wartime workers went back to their ordinary avocations, she stayed.   When she left Printing House Square, in 1940, she she had been at work for nearly a quarter of a century, at the same time bringing up her growing family outside London - from the beginning of their university years near Oxford, where she built a house, well known in subsequent years to people from many types and grades of schools who visited her there.   Some of her friends remember seeing Dr. Maria Montessori, the Italian educator, who was staying at her house, trying to fathom the English Scout movement, sitting upon a log in a woodland clearing while the local schoolmaster demonstrated to a circle, of which she was one, how not to blunt an axe.
  With Dr. Montessori Mrs Radice wrote The New Children, bringing out the principle strongly held by both that while education should be conservative, maintaining our cultural heritage, the administration of education should be liberal.   Her other publications included Not All Sleep (1938), a life of James Hammond, the poet.   She was joint founder - with Lieutenant General Sir William Furse - of the Public School Careers Association and was for seven years its honorary secretary.
