Maurice Tanton Woodhouse was born in 1903 at Bridlington the son of Mr and Mrs T. Woodhouse and died in 1953 at Leeds. He was a pupil teacher at Hilderthorpe School in 1921, gained a B.A. from Leeds University in 1924 and an M.A. in Education in 1925. In 1927 he was appointed Resident Lecturer on the Principles of Teaching at the City of Leeds Training College where he spent the rest of his working life becoming Master of Method in 1932 and the first Senior Tutor in 1948. His main academic interest in the early part of his career was the teaching of Geography, but he later developed an interest in photography and cinema particularly its uses in teaching and its effects on children. In 1952 he gained a doctorate from his Alma Mater with a study of film appreciation in schools.
