      Article from the Internet extractions presumably this person
      In a similar vein, four years previously (1929), a certain Mr William Whitton Ness residing in Scotland had taken up cudgels against the CTB on a number of matters, including his querying the competence of the members of the Examination Board for the Home Teaching Certificate to fulfil their assessment duties; the ensuing tart correspondence had been duly published in "The Teacher of the Blind" periodicals (Whitton Ness, July 1929; November 1929; Stone, 1929).
      However, unrest surfaced again, this time in the late 1920s, with regard to the employment of blind home teachers. The above-mentioned, vociferous Whitton Ness (November 1929) deplored the regular appointing of "Sighted Females" (p. 40) in preference to "capable and efficient blind Home Teachers" (p. 40) and accused the CTB of limpness in its failure to offer adequate support to blind or partially sighted home teachers.
