Gifted child consultant Lyn Kendall

The world’s oldest and most famous high IQ society turns 70 this year – and it seems we’re in good company.

It turns out a lot happened in 1946, quite aside from the formation of Mensa on October 1 in Oxford. For starters, the National Insurance Act of 1946 put in place the blueprint for the NHS and welfare state in Britain, while on a global scale, the formation of the United Nations and Unicef were the manifestation of a post-War desire for greater global co-operation.
