Hypothalamus Amygdala

T

he next time you visit a historic house and see a pair of antlers mounted high on a wall, you will be witnessing the considerable costs and risks of reproduction, as well as the vanity of the hunter. Each autumn stags not only grow these amazing weapons, they also put on a mound of muscle, stop eating, and rush about bellowing like a brass band of trombones. Other stags will be charged, antlers interlocked, hides ripped, wounds reddening, victory or defeat declared. The object of this is access to as many fertile hinds as possible, and hence reproductive success – counted as the number of young sired. At this point, the buck (pun intended) passes to the female, but that’s another story. Breeding is not just a matter of a male feeling sexy. He also has to be fertile,

competitive, aggressive and prepared to take risks: of injury, failure, even death. All this is entirely due to the powerful action of a rather simple chemical: testosterone. Testosterone is a steroid, a group of hormones that includes oestrogen, that quintessential ‘female’ hormone responsible for the dramatic change in body shape of girls at puberty, and cortisol, the hormone that responds to stress, and without which we die. Testosterone supplies most of what the male’s physique and motivation needs to stand any chance of perpetuating his gene pool, and none of us would be here without it. Nearly all testosterone comes from the testes, and the annual variations in the amount they secrete is why stags in the summer graze peaceably together, but engage in lethal fights a few months later. It is also why a castrated stag is not only a non-combatant in the annual

Testosterone maketh man Men are as dependent on testosterone as any stag. Tribes compete with others for the best hunting grounds, the clearest water: it is the young men who do the fighting. They defend their territory, or attempt to capture the resources of others. They may even go to war. They compete for the most desirable mates: both by overcoming other young men, and by appearing most attractive to young women. For this, they need to be both sexually motivated but also competitive. Next time a car goes past you rather too fast, with a loud exhaust note and the stereo blaring, you can safely bet that it’s being driven by a young male: part of sexual display. Darwin taught us that individual differences in physical and behavioural features underpin competitiveness, attractiveness and fertility, and these determine survival, not only of the individual but also his progeny. Malthus emphasised the vital importance of adequate resources. So it is essential for young males to take risks. Testosterone not only equips them for so doing, it also makes risk-taking attractive. It is a biological fact that young men, like the young males of other species, are expendable. Only a few are required to fertilise very many females. Many will fail, many will die. But without taking any risks, success is not possible. A consistent feature of human history is the slaughter of young men. Men bring into the modern world the physiological and behavioural features developed for success in a more primitive one. But there is one important difference. Whereas the natural world owes nothing to the ingenuity of the human brain – indeed, the human brain reflects successful adaptation to that world – the modern world is largely its creation. So the human brain – largely the male brain – sets the scene in which modern competition and success will unfold in business, finance and everyday life. Testosterone goes on playing its essential role in the construction of the competitive arena and individual success within this manmade world. Man has also invented surrogates that satisfy the inbuilt masculine liking for risk and competitive success.

The thrills and spills of motor racing and financial trading If Jensen Button or Lewis Hamilton drives round Silverstone with due care and attention, they will almost certainly finish the race. They will never win it. Each corner is a risk, an assessment of whether the probability of staying on track is acceptably greater than spinning off. No driver, however good, can ever be sure. But the best drivers not only enjoy the challenge, they make the best risk assessments. All Formula 1 drivers are young males. Interestingly, the men that run Formula 1 are not young, just as the generals of an army or the elders of the tribe are not, but it is the young men who are sent out to race (or fight and die). Formula 1 does not make the biological world a better place. Wheat yields are not improved, water is not made more plentiful. It’s a wholly man-made competition to prove superiority, and one that requires considerable risk. Neither is the world improved by a Chelsea win, but the primeval forces that drive competition between rival tribes survives in this modern format, and every pass is a risk taken by a testosterone-driven young man with plenty to lose. Competitive sport requires strong, fit individuals, so young males are well suited to it. This is not so obvious for other occupations, yet in some, young men also predominate. If you go onto a financial trading floor, you will be impressed by the fact that nearly all financial traders are male, and most of them are under 40. They are required to make rapid, frequent decisions about whether or not to engage in a trade (eg buy or sell a stock or a commodity etc), based on a mass of current information. Like some other occupations, the consequences of a mistake can be disastrous both for the individual and his organisation. Rather similar to deciding whether to fight a competitor or run away. Just like armies, those that control the banks are not young, though they are mostly male. Their testosterone may have declined somewhat with age, though this is highly variable. They decide the overall strategy, as well as monitoring the performance of the youngsters. But they, like the generals, recognise that rapid decisions involving high risk and taken under extreme pressure are best made by young men, who are biologically equipped to do just that. Testosterone, making money or picking fights For years, economists have sought a general theory that explains how and why people make financial decisions. You can see the temptation. Einstein provided a fundamental theory for physics, Darwin another for biology: both have revolutionised their fields. Why not one for economics? It hasn’t

But we can do this in the lab, using the sort of games referred to above. Male sexuality and aggression are strictly controlled in all species. In humans there are numerous legal and social (including religious) restraints on both. Sometimes these break down. In war, young men frequently rape the women of the defeated enemy. This is a regular event, and breaches all the social safeguards that normally ensure (in other primates as well as man) that females have a choice of mate. It is estimated that around 250,000 women were raped by Russian soldiers following their capture of Berlin in 1945. One curious feature of ‘military’ rape is that it is often committed by young men who would never contemplate such an action in their normal lives. Some feature of battle, or its aftermath, or the emotion of conquering a demonised foe, leads to unbridled testosterone-driven behaviour, quite outside the norm for humans. Another example can be seen any Saturday night in most towns in the UK. Alcohol disinhibits behaviour: it neutralises some of the social controls that are normally instigated by upbringing, social conventions or the law. This includes the restraint on aggression, normally part of any primate society. Young men, liberated by alcohol from this control, indulge in primal behaviour normally related to the competition for mates and resources. Testosterone in the brain: what makes a man How does testosterone accomplish all this? You cannot hear Radio 4 (the message) unless you have a radio (a receiver) tuned to the right frequency. A cell cannot detect testosterone (the message), or respond to it, unless it has the correct receptor (the receiver). The receptor for testosterone is a protein to which testosterone attaches. The combined molecule is then enabled to attach itself to a special site on DNA, and thus activates a whole range of genes. Muscle cells have plenty of testosterone receptors: so testosterone causes muscles to grow, a fact known to body builders and athletes, who may use (illegal) testosterone or related steroids. The bizarre results are obvious. The testis itself needs testosterone to form mature sperm. The male’s

happened. I am not at all qualified to provide an informed criticism of theories of economic decision-making, but one thing is clear. The assumption that financial decisions are made entirely rationally (that is, an objective assessment of all the information available and the possible outcomes of any decision) is wrong. Emotion has only recently been recognised as interesting by economists, but it plays a huge part. If people play a computerised game in which they bet on the chance of guessing something correctly, then they bet more if they are told they have a 50% chance of winning than they do on a 50% chance of losing, though both, of course, are the same. That is not rational decisionmaking: the words ‘win’ or ‘lose’ have set up an emotional bias. But: people with brain damage that impairs emotion can no longer take optimal financial decisions. So emotion is not simply a hindrance to rationality, it’s important. The sort of emotion needed, and when and why it is required, are all subjects for future research. This is where hormones come in. Testosterone may increase risk-taking by raising competitiveness and appetite for risk (thrills), whilst cortisol (mentioned above) can increase fear (caution). Both hormones are very labile: levels in the blood vary for a variety of reasons. Both are highest during the early morning and fall during the day. But both also respond to events, though in different ways. Testosterone increases in males after winning a game of tennis, and even driving a Porsche, or even in the blood of spectators if their team wins the match. Losing, or fear of danger, lowers testosterone. Levels fall dramatically in army recruits during a survival course (very strenuous, and they have little food) or in soldiers exposed to real danger. Cortisol is the stress hormone: levels rise sharply after exposure to either physical demand (eg cold) or psychological adversity (eg a loss) or threat of one, particularly if this is perceived as being unpredictable or uncontrollable. We studied a group of young financial traders. We expected to find that testosterone increased when they made money, but fell if they lost. In fact, we found that levels (which varied quite widely between individuals) predicted gains: they were higher in the morning on days they made money. Did they take greater risks (that paid off)? We don’t yet know. Cortisol did not reflect profit or loss, but higher levels related to the uncertainty of the market (this can be measured). It may promote caution in unpredictable conditions. We only studied a small group over a few days, so this is being extended to a much larger one over a much longer period. What we can’t do, in the real world,

genitals have receptors, so the penis becomes larger at puberty. The prostate gland has receptors, and these can be blocked if the prostate gets too large or becomes cancerous. But the central event is the way that testosterone alters the brain. Receptors for testosterone are not scattered throughout the brain, but concentrated in those parts we know to be concerned with emotion and motivation. These areas are not part of the cortex, the wrinkled mantle that we see when we look at the brain, and which is known to be essential for the most complex functions, like thought, decisions, intricate movement, vision, hearing, feeling and so on. But there is a tiny area behind the eyes at the base of the brain, the hypothalamus, which has a set of receptors. Another lies in a somewhat larger structure, close to the hypothalamus, but buried deep under the cortex lying under the skull beneath your ears. This is the amygdala. These two are responsible for much of the action of testosterone on behaviour. The hypothalamus is essential for survival. It monitors energy levels, and makes you feel hungry if they fall; body fluids, and makes you thirsty if they become depleted; body temperature, and makes you shiver if it detects cooling. It also monitors the level of testosterone, and makes a male sexy if levels increase sufficiently. It may also promote testosterone-related aggression. Damage to the hypothalamus, as well as disturbing other functions, may also prevent testosterone activating sexuality. The hypothalamus knows nothing about the external environment. Yet this information is essential: how else to find a mate, recognise a competitor, know the location of resources, avoid danger? Testosterone-driven sexuality would be biologically useless without this knowledge. Information from the environment, detected by the senses, is largely analysed and synthesised by the cortex. So a man recognises a female when he sees one. He also recognises a particular female. Some of this information passes to the amygdala, which has an important function in assigning an emotional state to a sensory experience. The amygdala is influenced by a number of chemical agents, including testosterone. It has plentiful connections with the hypothalamus. But they do not act alone. The cortex does not let the amygdala and hypothalamus (the limbic system) get on with it. The cortex is also responsible for the fact that we obey social rules, are able to plan actions, can appreciate the actions and emotions of others (empathy) and can decide whether or not to follow a particular course of action. So it regulates the more primeval actions of the limbic system.

The high forehead of humans is the result of the great development of the cortex at the front of the brain – called, naturally, the frontal lobes. This is where much of the social and emotional control and decision-making capacity is seated. We refer to people as ‘highbrow’ or ‘lowbrow’. Damage it, and the person may no longer be able to plan his/her life adequately, take optimal decisions, behave appropriately in a social setting, or control his/her emotions. These defects apply to testosterone-dependent sexuality and all its associated behaviours (aggression etc). The frontal lobes have direct connections with the amygdala. Most of the cortex matures – that is, develops its arrangement of nerve cells and their connections – quite early in life: during childhood. But the frontal lobes continue this maturation process well into the early twenties. There may be a strategy here. If the frontal lobes were fully mature, would young men take the risks they need to, enjoy competition and aggression for its own sake, though with a hidden agenda? Frontal lobe maturity might be biologically disadvantageous in young men. So we may have an explanation of why young men behave as they do, and have their special role: lots of testosterone and an immature frontal lobe. Just what you always thought. Testosterone also maketh the father of the man The transformation of a little boy, neat and well-behaved, into a hairy, smelly, sullen, rebellious adolescent is due to testosterone. But the adolescent brain has

experienced this hormone before. Early in pregnancy, the male baby’s testes start to produce it for a few weeks. This foetal testosterone has a massive effect on the internal organs, the external genitals and the brain. The brain is ‘masculinised’: that is, made sensitive to testosterone that will be secreted later at puberty. Absence of this early testosterone surge renders the brain much less responsive to testosterone: in rodents, sexuality is markedly less malelike, and it is much easier to evoke ‘feminine’ patterns of behaviour with the right hormonal treatment to which the normal male is highly resistant. The brain has been ‘organised’ by foetal testosterone. It is ‘activated’ at puberty by the second, and much more prolonged, bout of testosterone. This may also apply to gender-related behaviour, such as risktaking or aggression. Testosterone thus plays an essential role in a man’s life from his beginning. The distinct play-behaviour of male toddlers is witness that the brain is not gender-neutral at birth. Testosterone, more than any other chemical, has shaped the course of human history.

n Issue 3 of Once a Caian..., Dr Richard Duncan–Jones (1963) wrote eloquently of Edward Wilson (1891), Fellow of the College, who was tragically to perish with Captain Scott on their return from the Pole in 1912, and of the Caius flag that still hangs shrouded beside the Fellows entrance to Hall. 2010 marks the centenary of Wilson’s departure on that fateful expedition, and now seems an appropriate time to reflect further on the links between our College and Terra Australia Incognita. In his piece, Dr Duncan-Jones reflected briefly upon another Caian, a comrade of Scott, who was to have a profound effect on the development of both Geographical and Polar studies at the University of Cambridge; a man who provided the link between the ‘golden-age of polar exploration’ and the practicalities of modern-day polar research. This man was known to all simply as ‘Deb’. Frank Debenham (1913) was one of numerous Australian explorers, including Mawson and Wilkins, who were drawn to the poles during ‘the golden years of polar exploration’, further assisting our knowledge of this expansive continent in a time when science and exploration still existed as comfortable bedfellows. This combination of ‘science and action’ or ‘brain and body’ has always appealed to me, and it was explorers like Debenham and his type that I looked to in my youth. No doubt there are other Australians who’ve rambled through Caius, intent on making their contribution to our knowledge of the Polar environs, thus continuing the

links between Caius, Antarctica and perhaps the Scott Polar Research Institute (SPRI), but I like to think that in some small way, I too am following in the footsteps of my intrepid compatriot, Frank Debenham. Frank Debenham, OBE was born at Bowral, New South Wales, Australia on Boxing Day in 1883. After completing his schooling and initial tertiary studies in the Classics in Sydney, Deb returned to university in 1910 to complete further studies in geology and petrology. Deb’s Professor of Geology at the time was Welsh-born Tannant William Edgeworth David, who had served with Shackleton on the 1907-1909 British Antarctic (Nimrod) Expedition. Edgeworth David was to be instrumental in permanently altering the course of Deb’s life. Like Deb, I too was born in country New South Wales, in a town called Young, only 100 miles from Bowral. I’d always wanted to be a polar explorer and scientist, and in 1993 whilst struggling to remain motivated on a RAAF Pilot’s course I wrote to Sir Ranulph Fiennes, the world's greatest living explorer, seeking his advice on how to become a Polar Explorer. Shortly afterwards I naively applied for a job as a glaciologist with the Australian Antarctic Division, reasoning that there couldn’t be any ‘actual’ glaciologists out there and that my Honours degree in Oceanography and my experience in the outdoors would surely make me as suitable as anyone. I heard back from Ran, but didn’t pass the course and didn't get the job, so the desire still smouldered as I made the most of a more typical military career over the next 15 years or so. Upon the arrival of the Internet I soon realised that there were actually trained glaciologists, yet the only route to this title was to obtain a PhD, hence from my somewhat closeted military world my eyes were opened and I had a plan. At an age well before I’d finally got myself organised, Deb was swept into Polar adventures of which I could only dream; an adventure which would alter the course of his life. When Scott came recruiting for his second expedition, the Terra Nova Expedition of 1910-1913 (officially the British Antarctic Expedition 1910), Edgeworth David, approached by Scott, recommended Debenham as a geologist. Deb was one of the expedition’s youngest members and his life was to change irrevocably as he soon found himself bound for the great southern land. Although Deb’s primary role was as a geologist, his leadership qualities soon became apparent to Scott, and he was later appointed to lead his own geological

Prior to this appointment within the Geography Department, Deb had acquired space, initially in the attic rooms of the Sedgwick Buildings, to study and amass artefacts and equipment from the Antarctic expedition, and from 1913 to 1927 it became a calling point for all who were interested in polar expeditions. With a university position now secured, Deb had the foundation on which to base a more dedicated attempt to establish within the University a centre for polar studies as a memorial to his companions who had died so tragically on the polar journey. Since their return from the ice, Deb had remained in constant correspondence with his good friend Apsley Cherry-Garrard, and often used him as a sounding board for his ideas, apparently first referring to his conceptualised body as the Scott Polar Research Institute in a letter to Cherry-Garrard in 1920. With the assistance of Cherry-Garrard, Raymond Priestly, Charles Wright and James Wordie (of Shackleton’s last expedition) Deb continued to lobby the Royal Geographical Society and the University Senate, and on 26 November 1920 the University stated, “they would welcome the establishment of the proposed Polar Research Institute at Cambridge…”. The Institute was to be housed temporarily within the Sedgwick Museum of Geology, whilst additional building funds were sought. After further petitioning and lobbying, and an interim move to Lensfield House, sufficient funds were eventually accrued. In 1934 the Scott Polar Research Institute on Lensfield Road was completed, and a celebratory lunch followed in the Caius dining hall. At the subsequent ceremony in the Senate House, the Chancellor of the University gave an effusive speech in praise of exploration and the role of the new Institute: ‘This building provides a library for those who are led, as men are today, to this work. Those who are going into the partly known and the little unknown, they may study there what has been done, how difficulties have been overcome, what equipment is necessary, what equipment has been proved to be superfluous or bad, and they may have all the knowledge that has been gleaned and left for them by those who have blazed the trail. And, similarly when they come back they can there, make their records, and leave behind them whatever they have to leave for the benefit of those who follow in their footsteps.’ (Polar Record, 1935: 2-9) In my limited time at SPRI I have been very fortunate to have participated in field studies in Greenland, Svalbard, and Antarctica; the polar adventure that I sought for so long is now at hand.

expedition in the ascent of Mt Erebus. In his personal journals, Scott noted Debenham as “a well-trained sturdy worker who realises the conception of thoroughness (and) conscientiousness…”. The expedition of course ended in tragedy, and it was upon Deb’s return in 1913 that he entered Caius, his obvious college of choice as this took him in the footsteps of his now-deceased hero, ‘Uncle Bill’, Edward Wilson. Before much time was available to organise his papers, the rumblings of war saw Deb enlist, with appointment as a Lieutenant in the 7th Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire Light Infantry in 1914. Deb was shortly promoted to Captain, thence Major, and served both in France and Greece before being repatriated back to the UK in late 1916 after suffering serious injuries due to shellfire. He subsequently served in numerous training and support roles, still medically unfit to return to the front-line, before being demobilised in 1919. He was appointed OBE in the same year, and returned to Caius to resume his academic career. Deb was admitted to the degree of BA in 1919, and was duly elected to the Fellowship. At this time he was also appointed to the Royal Geographical Society lectureship in surveying and cartography, and so assumed a role within the embryonic Department of Geography. My own entrance to Cambridge was far less exciting, yet similar nevertheless. My father-in-law John Kelly was an undergraduate at Caius in the 1960s. He was a surveyor, who had worked with the British Directorate of Overseas Surveys, exploring and mapping uncharted regions in Zambia, Nigeria and the Caribbean. Caius was to be my College of choice. After many years of digesting polar literature, and with Deb and his ilk on my mind, the Scott Polar Research Institute within the Department of Geography was the only spot for me, and I duly applied to both Caius and SPRI. And so, at the same age as Deb, I resigned my commission as a Major in the Royal Australian Engineers (RAE) and after suitable paperwork, was accepted to undertake a PhD in Polar Studies at the Scott Polar Research Institute in Lent Term 2007. When Deb arrived in Cambridge SPRI was still but a dream. Deb spent much of his initial time collating the scientific reports of the Terra Nova expedition, yet was also required to lecture in Cartography and Surveying, at one time setting his students the task of recalculating the position of the geographical South Pole; a procedure originally carried out by Bowers upon the arrival of the polar party in January 1912.

research differs greatly from that which was carried out in Deb’s time, but the problems of distance and logistics still remain. Fittingly, my own research involves using a cone penetrometer (CPT) in an attempt to measure the resistance and strength of polar snow packs; ultimately to assist in the design and construction of roads, runways and infrastructure on polar snow, such as the new Halley VI Base currently being constructed by the British Antarctic Survey (BAS). With the assistance of two UK companies, Lankelma and Gardline Geosciences, I have modified an existing CPT device and mounted it within a ‘box’, which can be mounted on and powered by a standard agricultural tractor, as currently in use by BAS. I’m currently at Halley Base where amidst my tractor driving tasks I’m ‘poking and prodding’ the snow in an effort to assess its capacity to be loaded, and the variability that exists within the site. Snow is a curious

material, which behaves in many different ways, but hopefully my research will provide some insight into the ‘science of snow’ and provide a small contribution to the ongoing preservation and exploration of the earth’s Polar Regions. Living conditions for me are far more salubrious than those experienced by Deb, as I move from heated residence to heated tractor cab, only venturing outside to conduct my testing. Even then I'm restricted to remain within the confines of the base, so that not too much adventure or exploration shall ensue. Nevertheless, occasional ventures beyond the perimeter into the ‘greater Antarctic’ offer me glimpses of all that this continent has offered in times past, and to those who move beyond the constraints of modern Antarctic life. Deb remained as Director of SPRI until 1946, throughout this time adding untiringly to its collections, and developing its stature as a renowned centre of learning. He also enthusiastically opened the Institute’s doors to those young mountaineers and explorers who came calling, seeking advice for their adventures in the Polar Regions. After his retirement he continued to remain active in polar and geographical matters, also serving as vice-president of the RGS from 1951 to 1953, before passing away in Cambridge in 1965. My time in Antarctica is almost over. Although it is almost a century since the Caius flag flew at the South Pole alongside Scott, Wilson, Oates, Bowers and Evans, Caians continue to seek adventure at the frozen ends of the planet. The roles are different and certainly conditions are far more comfortable, yet “The Flag still flies”.

John Caius and his Statutes by Michael Prichard (1950)

T

o mark the Quincentenary of Caius’ birth on 6 October 1510 it is planned to produce a translation of the Latin text of the Statutes that he made for the College in 1558 and revised in 1572 shortly before his death, and to accompany

them with a translation of the other three documents which, together with the Statutes, provided the constitution of the College for three hundred years and remained unchanged and unchangeable until 1860. Those documents are: the Charter of 1557 which empowered Caius to make

statutes for his new College; the statutes which William Bateman had given to Gonville Hall in 1353 and 1355 and which has primacy over Caius’ statutes; and the rulings on the Interpretation of Caius’ statutes which his friend, Matthew Parker, the Archbishop of Canterbury, made in 1575

in pursuance of a power entrusted to him by Caius in his will. The four documents are in Latin, but in very different linguistic styles and script; and each presents its own challenges to the translator. It is not surprising that they were not translated during the centuries in which they were in force prior to 1860, because access to the statutes was jealously restricted by Caius’ express directions in his statutes and the few persons who were permitted access to them would have been conversant with Latin. It is more surprising that no translation of any of the four documents has been published since 1860: so far as is known, the only translation that has been undertaken is a translation of the Charter professionally commissioned by the College in the middle of the last century for use in its commercial transactions, which has not been published. The restrictions imposed by Caius meant that not even the Latin text of the original documents was published until 1901. The Commissioners appointed to examine and report on the University and its Colleges had sought to publish them in 1852, together with the corresponding documents of the other colleges; but their request to see them was stubbornly refused by the Master, Benedict Chapman. The Commissioners somewhat Second Statutes of cravenly declined battle William Bateman for Gonville Hall (1935). and withdrew to London where they resorted to the copy of the Charter enrolled on the Patent Roll. They then betook reproduction of the Patent Roll did not make themselves to Lambeth Palace, where they it easy reading; nor did he publish Parker’s were able to use the copies of the statutes of Interpretation. both Bateman and Caius that the College had, Of the four documents Caius’ statutes are after some hesitation, sent to Archbishop by far the largest and most detailed. He was a Parker soon after Caius’ death with a request keen Classical scholar and had lectured on for his rulings on the correct interpretation of Aristotle in the original Greek when he had his statutes. These copies had – fortunately been pursuing his medical studies at Padua. As for the Commissioners – been retained in one would therefore expect his statutes are Lambeth Palace library together with a copy written in classical Latin; his grammar and of Parker’s own Interpretation. The syntax cannot be faulted, but his train of Commissioners were thus able to publish thought is expressed in a style that is often copies of all four documents in their 3very difficult to follow and one is left volume edition of Documents relating to the guessing at his meaning in numerous University and Colleges of Cambridge in 1852; passages. This occurs most frequently when but the originals themselves remained he seeks to express a philosophical unpublished until John Venn included the justification for the rules that he imposes; for Latin text of both Bateman’s and Caius’ these justifications he was inclined to call in statutes in Volume III of the Biographical aid a classical author or a biblical quotation, History in 1901. For some reason Venn did not sometimes expressly and on other occasions publish the Latin text of the Charter, even without acknowledgment, no doubt assuming though the Commissioners’ facsimile that his reader would need no prompting to

recognise the passage. One or two of these are recognisable today, but some passages are expressed so obscurely that one is left suspecting that he had some quotation in mind when he was dictating to his scribe. For the lawyer who scrutinises his statutes some teasing questions come to mind. Those questions do not ask what happened – which is usually already wellknown – but ask: “by what legal argument and reasoning did the College justify itself in disregarding the clear wording and intent of the statutes?” One can mention only a few here. First, the question of Marriage. Caius imposed celibacy upon both Master and Fellows in a statute that specifically applied to both. How then did it come about that that statute was dutifully applied in the case of Fellows until his statutes were repealed, yet it was disregarded in the case of Masters from the middle of the 17th century onward? Next, the composition of the Governing Body. Caius’


12 Once a Caian... statutes provided for 13 Fellows on his own and previous foundations, and for as many more as might be supported by benefactions in the future, and, when he provided for major collegiate decisions to be taken by the Master and Fellows “for the time being”, he drew no distinction between categories of Fellowship. How then did those decisions come to be taken by the Master and the 12 Senior Fellows to the complete exclusion of those other Fellows? And how did the 13 become 12? A third question raises the delicate issue of Dividend: Caius was particularly anxious to ensure that neither the capital nor the revenue of the College should be shared out among the members of the Governing Body, and he went to great lengths to provide that this should not happen and particularly that any surplus in the income of the College after the payment of stipends should not be divided among the Master and Fellows but retained for corporate endowment. Yet within less than a lifetime the concept of a stipend had been supplemented by that of a dividend, and the Master and Fellows were sharing out a part of the rents among themselves. These three questions provoked little dissent before the 19th century. Not so a fourth question which was the subject of bitter lawsuits in the 17th and 18th centuries: the Master’s Negative Vote and the constitutional relationship between the Master and the Fellows in respect of decisions required by the statutes to be taken by them both. Caius had provided very specifically that the Master should have an effective negative vote in any decisions for which his statutes required the assent of the Master and a majority of the Fellows; in other words, what was required was a vote of the Master and a majority of the Fellows, not that of a majority of the Master and Fellows. What made for conflict was Caius’ further direction that, in the event of a failure to agree on the crucial issue of the election of a Fellow, the Master should be entitled to take the decision by default after a period of delay. It is not surprising that the point was argued throughout the following centuries despite Caius’ very specific direction on the matter: it resulted in litigation in the time of Branthwaite early in the 17th century, and again in the 18th during the Mastership of Sir John Ellis (“com’only called the divel of Keys”). The point was more arguable than it might seem, for, it raised the nice question whether Caius’ statute conflicted with a direction that Bateman had given and was thereby invalid. For the historian Caius’ statutes reveal, in addition to a remarkable wealth of detail on the management of leasehold and copyhold land, many small and mundane aspects of the structure and daily life of the College in the 16th century that have remained largely unremarked since Venn’s time. For example,

...Always a Caian 13 the allocation of rooms; the precise rules for the opening and shutting of the gates and the retention of the medieval gate into Gonville Court as the main gate of the College even after the creation of the Gate of Virtue and that of Humility; the tenure, duties and responsibilities of the different College Officers; the different classes of membership of the College, some of which have long since disappeared, and the rigid separation of those classes at the meal-table. The statutes also demonstrate repeatedly Caius’ reaction to the parlous state in which he found the College’s finances when he returned to Cambridge, and his resulting concern for the preservation of the College’s corporate capital and the establishment of an adequate system of accounts and records to protect it: the long Second Part of the statutes is devoted to remarkably minute and detailed instructions for the preservation of the freehold and copyhold estates that provided the college’s only form of investment. But above all his statutes reveal the change in his personality that seems to have occurred in the period between the first rough draft of his ideas for statutes sketched out in 1557 before the formal grant of the Charter and the final version he dictated in 1571 or 1572. He must always have had a severe temperament, but in 1557, when he set out rules and specified punishments for infringing them in his draft statutes, he had been content to do just that; as a result they are like those of any other parliamentary, university or college statutes. By 1572 he had become obsessed with man’s moral frailty and the value of retributive justice and the effectiveness of punishment: not content with formulating rules and specifying appropriate punishments he felt impelled to impart to the reader his philosophical musings on the moral justification for such rules and punishment at great length and in complex syntax – it is almost as if he was appending the sort of political preamble that Henry VIII’s ministers were wont to prefix to his more stringent and repressive legislation. One would like very much to know when Caius’ musings began to appear in his statutes and whether they were only added in old age. Unfortunately we do not have the original version of the statutes that he promulgated in 1558, but one’s general impression is that the philosophical musings were probably added later at the time of the final version; for they tend to appear at the end of the relevant statute and to be in a much more opaque wording and style. Given that no similar pre-occupation with human fraility pervades the other numerous works that he wrote in his old age, one wonders how far this particular characteristic of the Statutes is due to the fractious disputes that occurred in College in the later years of his Mastership.

It has long been recognised that Caius was a disillusioned and dying man by the time that he withdrew to London shortly before his death in 1573, and the final straw in his disillusion must have been the shameful ransacking of his rooms and the public burning of their ‘popish’ contents in December 1572, probably in the very court that he had just provided for the College entirely out of his own money. That event has prompted the belief that his quarrels with the Fellows were predominantly religious in origin and arose principally out of doctrinal differences with the majority of them. We should however guard against the assumption that the emphasis on moral frailty that pervades his statutes arose solely, or even principally, from disputes with the Fellowship generally over religious doctrine or liturgy. In particular, one must guard against the assumption that the gloomy character of his statutes reflects his reaction to the ransacking: It could not have done so. A reading of the statutes leads one to doubt whether religious differences were the root of his quarrels with the Fellowship. It is true that his most vocal opponents were zealous and intolerant young reformers who trumpeted the charge of popery against him, and it is also true that he was ‘guilty’ of preserving in his rooms such evidence of popery as ornate vestments, old chalices and other vessels of precious metal, and that, as his provision for no less than five organists in his statutes shows, he was anxious to preserve the use of far more music in services in the chapel than the reformers of Edward VI’s reign had prescribed. There is, however, good reason to suppose that the impetus for the shameful event of 1572 came predominantly from outside the College and a few hotheads within it rather than from the majority of the Fellowship. Moreover, there is relatively little in his statutes that would be objectionable on doctrinal grounds to most reformers of those early years of Elizabeth’s reign such as his long-term friend Matthew Parker, or indeed to Elizabeth herself. The direction for the celebration of the feast of the Conception of the Virgin Mary and the observance of exequies are perhaps the only two such instances, and even there Caius was careful to require exequies only if they were allowed by the law of the land. Caius venerated the past and his loving preservation of precious and beautiful artifacts of the past is as easily explained by that veneration as by any yearning to restore popery. It seems more likely that the root of the disagreements lay in the overriding role that Caius accorded to the Master in the statutes. This must have been intolerable to the Fellows, particularly when that office was held by someone as autocratic as he undoubtedly was. His statutes vested in the

Master unqualified power over the day-today life of the College. As events continued to show in later centuries, it was inevitably a recipe for dispute with any Master as autocratic as Caius. It should not surprise us if the Fellows became increasingly restive under his government: he required that his entire statutes should be read out aloud to the Master and Fellows twice every year, and if the Fellows did in fact regularly have to undergo this penance, it should not surprise us if they became restive, or even if they became hot-headed reformers. Caius appears to have planned and formulated his statutes on his own and without the active assistance of anyone else. Bishop Bateman on the other hand was not in that position: he had experienced civil and canon lawyers to assist him, and, as Professor Brooke has hinted in his history of the College, his Official, Walter of Elveden, may well have played a greater role in producing them than he admitted. As a consequence, in comparison with Caius’ statutes, Bateman’s are far easier to read and comprehend, and they present far fewer ambiguities and obscurities to the lawyer who seek to apply them. Bateman’s statutes provoke searching questions, but they are of

a different kind from those which Caius’ statutes present. In Caius’ case the difficult problem is to work out what he meant. In the case of Bateman his meaning is nearly always far clearer and we have his original document against which scribal errors in later copies can – with patience – be detected. The challenge is quite different: the text was intentionally and significantly altered on at least two occasions in those copies by which it was transmitted to Caius and later generations. The first occasion saw the elimination of any reference to Bateman’s statutes for Trinity Hall, and the other the formulation of the ‘Norfolk preference’. The task is to answer why and when those changes were done and whether Caius was aware that they had been made. We have to unravel, first, what happened in the years between 1353 and 1557; then, how far Caius was aware in 1557 of what had happened and how he responded; and, finally, what part those changes played in the lawsuits between the Master and the Fellows in the 17th and 18th centuries. The first is a task for medieval historians; the second is for translators of Caius’ statutes; and the third is for lawyers reading the reports of those lawsuits.

and presented an account of his findings in the Caian of that year (Vol. I, pp104-106). Lock makes the statement that the grave was in the north east corner of the medieval chapel, quoting articles by John Lamb, Bursar 1860-1876, and by William Warren of Trinity Hall, who saw the grave opened in 1719. Another source of information is the card which is kept with the plaster cast of Dr Caius’ skull. The card is unsigned but it describes the grave opening of 1891 and says that the vault is ‘below the window now filled in with stained glass to the memory of Professor Romanes’. This window is the first to the west of Dr Caius’ monument but the statement is too vague to locate the grave accurately. The next stage of the investigation was to ask James Cox, the college archivist, to search the Lock papers and other records to see whether even a simple sketch had been left in 1891 to show the precise grave location. There was nothing, but an interesting entry was found in the Gesta of 7th October 1891. It recorded a College Council decision to ‘place a brass plate on the wall of the chapel recording the position of the tomb of Dr Caius’. Council never rushes important matters of this kind and the task has yet to

be completed. We were thus unable to say (last summer) precisely where Dr Caius was buried – an unfortunate situation in relation to our founder of whom we are so proud. Michael learned of the plan for electrical rewiring of the chapel during the long vacation of 2009 and arranged for two floor boards between the Romanes window and Dr Caius’ monument to be lifted. Due notice of the operation was given and it was attended by the President, the Dean, Professor Brooke, Dr Joanna Appleby – our Archaeology Fellow and several others who were interested. The boards were kept up for three days so that everyone had an opportunity to inspect the opening.

ichael Wood (1959) often takes college visitors around the old courts using his experience as a Cambridge Blue Badge Guide as well as the knowledge gained from 50 years as a Fellow. In the chapel he shows guests Dr Caius’ monument high up on the wall and explains that the sarcophagus does not contain the body but that the actual grave is beneath the seating against the north wall. ‘But where, precisely?’ is the usual question. This enquiry leads to great embarrassment because Michael discovered that no one knew exactly where the grave actually was. Even Professor Christopher Brooke (1945), our college historian, was unable to provide an answer. He directed Michael to Venn’s article in the Biographical History (Vol. III, p.159) which stated that the grave was in the north east corner of the chapel as it was in 1573. That merely changes the question since no one knew with certainty the position of the east wall of the medieval chapel before the building was extended in 1637. Venn’s article, published in 1901 probably drew on the findings of J. B. Lock (1874), the College Bursar, who opened the grave in 1891

Andrew Bryant (1998) interviewed by James Howell (2009)

I

n mid August, I travelled to Scampton in Lincolnshire to visit Flight Lieutenant Andy Bryant (1998) of the Royal Air Force Aerobatics Team – the Red Arrows. Andy is one of a team of 85 engineers, technicians and other staff who make up the Blues, the support team behind the Reds, each group identified by the colour of the flying suits they wear during the display season. As I skirted Lincoln I was already working on a title for my article; some form of wordplay on the theme of a Cambridge “Blue”. When I arrived at RAF Scampton, I was asked to wait in the coffee lounge where someone called Jengo would join me shortly. I was shown to a room, dominated by an enormous red massage chair and filled with trophies and memorabilia. In the centre was a coffee table piled with publicity posters and photographs awaiting the autographs of the celebrated flyers. As the room began to fill with relaxed and welcoming pilots in their distinctive red suits, I quickly realised that, in

the acronym filled world of the RAF, I was unlikely to hear my host referred to by anything other than Jengo, the Junior Engineering Officer. One of these young men made his way over and dropped lightly into the chair beside me, extending his hand in greeting. It was already time to think up a new title for my article; it turns out that Andy, as an officer, also wears a red flying suit. “It can be difficult at air shows” he explains, “Fans tend to assume that I’m one of the pilots and occasionally, after I’ve explained, they still ask for my autograph”.

Flight Lieutenant Andy Bryant (1998), Junior Engineering Officer with the Red Arrows.

Andy comes from an RAF family, his father having recently retired after a 39 years career. He was supported throughout his education by RAF bursaries and scholarships and he was the first member of his family to go to University. Once at Cambridge he joined the University Air Squadron where, in addition to gaining valuable flying experience, he did courses in team and mountain leadership, free-fall parachuting, sailing, sub-aqua and skiing. He was Captain of the promotionwinning Rugby Club of 2001-2 and was a member of the 2002 May Ball Committee. Predictably, on leaving Cambridge in 2003, Andy joined the Royal Air Force. After Initial Officer Training and Engineer Specialist Training he was posted to RAF Wittering as Officer Commanding Support Engineering Flight. He was then selected to be a Junior Engineering Officer on the first operational Typhoon squadron based at Coningsby. Here Andy worked on bringing the new aircraft into commission and maintaining the operational aircraft of the squadron. Every three weeks for

over a year, a new £60 million plane would arrive, and Andy and his team would have to prepare it for active service with the squadron. In 2007 he moved to Yeovilton in Somerset and from fixed-wing aircraft to helicopters. As part of the Helicopter Engines Integrated Project Team, he was responsible for airworthiness and engineering policy for all Merlin and Apache engines, liaising with the manufacturers (Rolls Royce in Bristol and Turbomeca in Biarritz) and supporting operations in Iraq and Afghanistan. Andy joined the Red Arrows in October 2009, as the annual display season came to an end. This is the time that all changes in the unit take place, most significantly in the nine member display team. Each year two or three new pilots join the team, and all get a new role within the formation, the exception being Red 1, the Officer Commanding, who always takes the position at the front of the formation. This year, however, it’s all change as Sqn Ldr Ben Murphy took over the squadron and moved up to the Red 1 slot. At the start of the new year the entire unit goes back to basics, a change marked by the putting away of the red flying suits, and returning to regulation green fatigues, until such time as the new flight is deemed fit for public display. Whilst the display team begins to rebuild, starting with small formations of three or four aircraft, Andy begins the task of giving each one of the BAE Systems Hawk aircraft an extensive overhaul. Six of the aircraft have been with the squadron since the Hawks were introduced to the squadron in 1979, making them almost exactly the same age as Andy. With only thirteen aircraft to play with, and a full overhaul taking between four and sixteen weeks, it is a complex operation to ensure that the engineering requirements do not conflict with the team’s training schedule. The engineers work in shifts from early morning to late at night to get the work completed in time. Through the winter the squadron work a five day week, flying three sorties each day. They build the formation first to a five ship “Enid”, an arrowhead formation of Reds 1-5, and eventually in February to their first full nine ship formation. Shortly after this, the squadron moves to Akrotiri in Cyprus, where clearer skies enable them to finalise their full display sequence. Only in mid-May, when they are awarded their Public Display Authority, will the new team don the Red flying suits for the start of the new season. During the display season, every day is meticulously planned. I was invited to attend the briefings, but Andy warned me of the need to be in my place by the time the bell sounded exactly one minute before the start of the session. The briefing room, not surprisingly, has ten red chairs at the front,

one for each of the nine display pilots, and a tenth for the Road Manager, whose aircraft will usually be on view on the ground at air shows, and who will give commentaries on the display over the PA system. The first briefing of the day was administrative and meteorological. Andy had to report on issues that had been identified on any of the aircraft, and what action had been taken to remedy them. Andy left at this point to get the aircraft ready for the sortie and the second briefing was specifically about that morning’s display over Cromer. The full programme was run through, including the precise timings of manoeuvres, with each pilot describing the details of their individual movements. After this, an alternative fictional emergency

scenario was run through in exactly the same way, based on an assumption that one of the aircraft had an engine fire and had to leave the flight. Each pilot had to explain what they would do, and where they would fit into the new emergency formation. As soon as the briefing was over, the crews made their way to their aircraft, stopping briefly to collect their helmets and flying kit. Everything is done in a pre-determined manner, so any variation from the norm can be quickly identified. Out on the apron each Red had a corresponding member of the Blues engineering team, who had prepared the aircraft and was ready to run through the final checks before departure. These nine engineers form the Circus, which accompanies the team when it is away from base. Andy, as the only officer in this group, is responsible for Red 1 and when travelling between shows always occupies the second behind Sqn Ldr Murphy. The Cromer trip is a quick display followed by a return to Scampton, but in the afternoon the squadron was off for six days on a tour of the South Coast, starting with Bournemouth. Each Hawk has a small compartment into which luggage is stored, but before any personal effects are loaded, Andy has to ensure that there is a full set of emergency spares and tools, to cover any eventuality that might arise. Only then can they find room for a change of clothes and a toothbrush. Anything else must follow by road, and catch up with the team where it breaks at the end of the day. As I leave Scampton, and in perfect synchronicity, the squadron takes off for the next stage of its gruelling summer season. All photos: Crown Copyright

The page was prepared, and even signed by the Master, Hugh Anderson, but Craigie joined the King’s Shropshire Light Infantry instead, and had a distinguished war career winning the Military Cross at the Battle of Langemarck in August 1917, and Bar at the Battle of Menin Road Ridge in September 1917 where he was wounded and invalided back to Britain. He survived the war, but never took up his place at Caius. Matriculation books which include a record of all Caians since 1560.

he College Archives hold the historical record of the College, its evidential heart and soul, with material ranging from the foundation of the college to the present day. The archives house those administrative records that we are legally obliged to hold, and an ever increasing record of College life as told by the experiences of the Fellows, Students and staff. Many of the images and artefacts that appear in this and in previous issues of Once a Caian… are kept in the archives. This year I have been fortunate to have the assistance of several volunteers. Two second year student students, Eleanor Harding (2008) and Natasha Brown (2008) will give their own personal accounts of what their archives experience represents for them, but I would like to acknowledge the contribution that they have made this year, along with those of Lucy Björkegren (2009), Natalie Brown and Heather Berry. They have all assisted by researching and responding to queries from Caians and members of the general public.

Archives by James Cox, College Archivist

A core responsibility of the archive is to ensure the long term care of the material within its care. The College holds the material in strong rooms with appropriate temperature and humidity controls, set to cater for the general needs of all the material. The range of this material within the archives is rich and varied – paper parchment, DVD, photographs, newspapers,

textiles, artefacts – all of which have different preservation requirements. Basic preservation techniques are used – we ensure that the material is handled in a correct way, for example wearing gloves when handling photographs, and the archives are boxed in archival quality material. Whenever possible, where material requires specialist care, we employ the services of very skilled conservators, who are able to advise and repair the documents to ensure their long term preservation. I hope all Caians will agree that the archives are a valuable and accessible resource, and I encourage them to contact us with their queries or their offerings. We are always looking for material to augment the collection, and especially to enlarge our photographic collection. So if you have old team photographs, menus or invitations

knocking about in drawers at home, which you would like to be preserved for future generations, I urge you to get in touch with a view to donating them to the College archives. I can be contacted by telephone on +44 (0)1223 332446 or by email at archivist@cai.cam.ac.uk

mongst the seemingly endless volumes of college records are a wealth of photographs collected or donated by members of the college. Through these photographs, and other sources, it’s possible to get a sense of what daily life was like at anytime between 1856, when the first group photograph in the Archive collection was taken, and the present day. Documenting the lives and experiences of recent Caians is of huge importance if the college archives are to remain relevant in fifty or a hundred years time. It seems, however, that the idea of preservation has almost been lost. For students of my generation it has become the norm to maintain a Facebook page; an online record of a person’s friends, social activities and day-to-day musings, rather than printed photographs and diaries. As third years, we may get the opportunity to contribute to a yearbook, which we’ll no doubt look over nostalgically over the coming decades and these yearbooks will make their way into the archives, along with the matriculation records and team photos, but it’s encouraging to see that DVDs and memory sticks can now be found in amongst the sepia shots solemn-looking men in blazers.

or the majority of undergraduates at Caius, the Archives are an undiscovered domain lying hidden at the back of the Fellows’ Library. When, as a first year historian, I registered my interest in collections with my Director of Studies, I did not realise that within a month I would fortunate enough to be volunteering regularly with James Cox, the College Archivist. James, who has the gargantuan task of acting as College Archivist, Records Manager and Deputy Curator of Portraits proved to be a welcoming and enthusiastic host, only too eager to reveal what can appear to be hidden from the students. It wasn’t what I was expecting: there was no dusting, no magnifying glasses, and absolutely no white gloves when handling paper documents. I am always surprised by the constantly changing nature of the collection; every week I would be shown a new acquisition, ranging from a team photograph or an embroidered Caius crest to a letter containing new information about a former student. Many seem to be the donations of interested Caians, who have dug through their attics, or trawled eBay to discover stored mementos of times gone by. Better still are the days when we receive visitors, most frequently researchers, often with fascinating subjects for which the most esoteric material is pulled out. One of my key roles as a volunteer, which I also did for longer stretches in the Long Vacation of 2009 and 2010, is to answer the vast number of enquiries that flood in on subjects relating, sometimes only very tenuously, to the College. These are not only academic enquiries, and some of the most interesting have been those by family members of alumni. As children or grandchildren give us new information about the later lives of Caians, we continue the tradition of annotating the Biographical History of the College. There is always a moment of excitement when I realise that one day a future Archivist will read, in my handwriting, the information they need for an enquiry. At the start, my intention in volunteering at the Archives was highly career-orientated; successive careers advisers had hammered home the belief that work experience was the key to securing a job in the museums sector. However, it quickly became something much more, and I have gained so much personally from the experience. The archival experience has been one side; debates on politics over photographs of former student political party leaders has been another; a new appreciation for the Archivist’s favourite author, Arthur Conan Doyle, yet another. Greater accessibility to the Archives and a wider understanding and appreciation of the work done has now become one of the changes I’m most keen to see at Caius. Through working at the Archives and with material documenting the experiences of students since the fourteenth century, the traditions of the College, which once seemed archaic and unnecessary, have taken on a new meaning and have heightened my enthusiasm for college life.

You helped the Boat Club to hone their technique thanks to a new Four.

None of this would have been possible without the donations, large and small, that Caians, parents and friends have made, and we are immensely grateful. The 2010 Caius Fund is supporting a new range of projects which represent key areas of College life and a wide range of interests. We are delighted to say that, further to the resounding success of our 2010 Telephone Campaign, we have already achieved our Caius Fund 2010 target, raising a total of £656,000. We’re proud to have raised the largest Annual Fund in Cambridge, and we thank you for the support and generosity that have made this possible. This year’s Telephone Campaign student callers reflected the diversity of subjects and activities on offer at Caius. Their studies ranged from Theology to Physics, and their extra-curricular pursuits included feeding the homeless, volunteering in local schools, sports, drama and music. Why were students so eager to take part?

by Soraya Nassar Annual Fund Officer

Samira explained: “I’m really grateful to Caius; without my College bursary I couldn’t be here, and taking part in the Telephone Campaign is my way of saying ‘Thank you’”. Meanwhile Eva, when asked about her experiences during the campaign, observed: “Taking part in the campaign, I was amazed that I had some of the best conversations of my life with people I’ve never met. I was surprised but delighted by how strong the connection to College still

is for Caians of all ages”. Our 2010 student callers are an eclectic bunch, but they, like you, share a common sense of loyalty to Caius – and they really enjoyed to speaking to you!

The

Stephen Hawking Circle

T

he third gathering of the Stephen Hawking Circle took place on Saturday 22nd May 2010. Benefactors who have given over £50,000 are invited to join this prestigious group and to attend a very special dinner with our most celebrated Fellow, Professor Stephen Hawking (1965). As guests assembled in the Colyton Hall and over a glass of Tattinger 2002 Champagne they were given the opportunity to have their photograph taken with Professor Hawking. The party then moved to the White Room where, in a talk entitled My Life: Caius and Physics, Professor Hawking explained his fellowship at Caius was a turning point in his life. It meant that he could continue his research, despite his increasing disability. He went on to describe the development of his research and the collaborations that he had been a part of. He concluded that he could picture “the origin of the universe as like the formation of bubbles of steam in boiling water. Quantum fluctuations lead to the spontaneous creation of tiny universes out of nothing. Most of the universes collapse to nothing, but a few that reach a critical size, will expand in an inflationary manner and will form galaxies and stars, and maybe beings like us.” Dinner of seared foie gras, scallops with smoked bacon, roast fillet of venison and tarte tatin was served in the Panelled Combination Room. A highlight of the dinner

were some very special wines. As Neil McKendrick (1958), the Chairman of the Wine Committee said to conclude his wine notes, “All benefactors deserve to be cherished, but inevitably our most generous benefactors inspire a very special sense of gratitude. For them we feel the need to respond to their exceptional generosity with an exceptional show of how much they mean to the college. So in our choice of wine tonight we have pulled out all the stops and

drawn the corks on some very special wines – those which we call our ‘accolade wines’ and which are released only very rarely. Some of the bottles that you have been offered tonight have been nestling in the college cellars for well over sixty years – their grapes were still ripening during the final year of the Second World War. I hope that their appearance tonight will be seen as testimony to how special an occasion these dinners are felt to be”. Yao Liang

Benefactors, Annie Haines (2009) was offered this honour and accepted. This decision also meant that when Christopher and Shirley Bailey made their donation, there were three new Gonville Benefactors to admit at the Commemoration of Benefactors service in Chapel in November 2009. Nick Sallnow-Smith (1969) lives in Hong Kong and coordinates a very active group of Caians there. He recently hosted a dinner for Members of the Court of Benefactors there to meet the Master and Director of Development on their recent visit (see page 33). Although Nick read Engineering at Caius, he always wished that he had studied Philosophy instead. He has therefore decided to support the study of Philosophy through funding a lectureship, and Dr Alex Oliver (1993) has been appointed as the first holder of this position. Dr Oliver is a Reader in the University Department of Philosophy and also lectures at the Judge Business School. His research is in the fields of metaphysics, logic and the philosophy of mathematics and of public affairs. Nick is also a donor to the 1969

Lectureship. Peter Vos and David Hulbert (both 1969) were so inspired by the announcement of the 1956 College Lecturer at the Benefactors’ Dinner in 2008 that they decided to see if they could emulate the achievement to celebrate the fortieth anniversary of their matriculation. They approached the Director of Development, Dr Anne Lyon (2001) with the proposal and formed a Committee comprising themselves and their contemporaries Richard Field, Mark Eaton and Professor David Ellar, and together planned a Ruby Reunion. Over fifty Caians and their partners assembled in September 2009 for a day of reminiscences and celebrations, concluding with a fine dinner in Hall. During the day, they enjoyed tours of new College facilities such as the Stephen Hawking Building and the Cockrell Library, and an exhibition of treasures from the College Archives. In his speech at dinner Peter Vos said: “I feel passionately that education is the future, not just of our country, but globally. Caius is at the forefront, providing ‘the best of the best’ to people who then go out into every field of endeavour. Whatever their subjects,

these days Caius graduates are top achievers and contributors to their communities, disciplines and businesses. Caius is meritocratic and international – its standards are always the highest. Forty years have flown by, but have proved the importance of the education we received, and I feel a duty to enable others to follow in our footsteps.” With particularly generous donations from the members of the Committee and from Andreas Papathomas and Nick SallnowSmith, a total of £300,000 was raised within twelve months, so that Dr Rob Miller (2001) could be appointed as the 1969 College Lecturer in time for the beginning of the 2010-11 academic year. In addition to his College duties, Rob is also the University Reader in Energy Technology at the Whittle Laboratory. The aim of his research is to develop technologies which will reduce greenhouse gas emissions. He works widely with industry, presently undertaking research projects with Rolls Royce, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries and Siemens on conventional fossil fuel based technologies, such as jet engines and land based gas turbine power stations; and on renewable technologies such as tidal

Christopher Bailey (1959) and his wife Shirley (2009) have endowed the Bailey Lectureship, with a preference that it be in Economics, which Christopher read, or History, which was studied by his son Jonathan (1987). Christopher feels that his time at Caius, 50 years ago, set the course of his future life, lifting his horizons and giving him the confidence to grasp the opportunities which arose. After Cambridge, Christopher qualified as an accountant and joined the civil engineering group Brown & Jackson, eventually becoming its joint Chairman. With his business partner he transformed the company into a retailing conglomerate, owning a wide variety of brands including the Poundstretcher chain of stores and the security alarms business, ATI.

ransforming Tomorrow, the Development Campaign brochure published in 2007, identified that one of the unique strengths of a Cambridge education is the College-based small group supervision system which emphasises individual learning and encourages argument and debate. It is the Fellows of the College that are primarily responsible for the delivery of this aspect of the teaching of our undergraduates. The majority of these Fellows receive their prime stipend from the University (UTOs or University Teaching Officers), but some are funded entirely by the College (CTOs). In both cases, the College also has to provide a room for teaching, dining rights and payment for carrying out supervisions for the College and for holding other College offices, such as Tutorships. To endow the College with sufficient to fund a College Lectureship for a CTO requires a capital sum of £1 million and, for a UTO, £300,000 In response to this call, individuals, or groups, came forward and the College was

Before moving to Cambridge in 2001 Rob held a Junior Research Fellowship at New College, Oxford and undertook his undergraduate and DPhil at St Catherine's. There have been some very generous donations to the 1958 Lectureship Fund, including those from Lord Simon of Highbury, Sir Keith Stuart, Sir Douglas Myers and David Skidmore, but perhaps the most extraordinary thing about this year group is the number of donors to the cause.

than one third of the year group supported this appeal following their Golden Jubilee Reunion in 2008. The first holder of the 1958 College Lectureship is Dr Dino Giussani (1996), University Reader in Developmental Cardiovascular Physiology and Medicine, who works on the prenatal origins of heart disease. The fifth College Lecturer is being funded, not in perpetuity, but for the next three years, as a result of the generosity of all those donors who gave to the Caius Fund on the 2010 Telephone Campaign. The 2010 Caius Fund College Lecturer is Dr Helen Mott (2005), the Assistant Director of Research in the University Department of Biochemistry. Helen runs a research team working on the structures and functions of small G proteins, the molecular switches that control many of the fundamental processes in cells. “In the last year, we have made great progress in safeguarding the supervision system at Caius,” says Dr Anne Lyon, the Director of Development “but there is still a long way to go until this hallmark of a Cambridge education is secured for posterity at the College.”

Festal Evensong at by James Howell (2009) All photos: James Howell

o celebrate the 500th Anniversary of the Birth of Dr Caius, a special Festal Evensong took place at Norwich Cathedral on Sunday 24 October 2010. The Dean of Norwich, the Very Revd Graham Smith, had invited the Dean of Caius, the Revd Dr Cally Hammond (2005) to preach the Sermon, and the College Choir to join with Cathedral Choir to mark this quincentenary in the city of John Caius’ birth. The Master and Fellows were also invited to take part in a procession at the beginning of the service. A substantial party from the College travelled to Norwich, stopping first at the plaque in King Street, set up to commemorate the place where Caius was born on 6 October 1510. After seeing St Ethelreda’s Church, where Caius was probably baptised, the Dragon Hall and the chapel and cell of Lady Julian of Norwich, the party moved on to the cathedral, where Professor Binski (1975) gave them a tour of the C11th foundation. A superb programme of music began with Annie Lydford (2009), the Wilfrid Holland Organ Scholar playing the organ voluntary, Allabreve BWV 589 by J S Bach, and included settings of the Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis by Charles Wood (1889). The highlight was the first performance of a new anthem by Robin Holloway (1967), Portae eternales, especially composed for the quincentenary celebrations. Many Caians attended the service as did clergy and parishioners from Blofield, Brooke, Foulden, Hockwold, Lavenham, Long Stratton, Mutford, Oxborough, Swanton Morley, and Worthing where the College is Patron.

n April 2010 the Master, Sir Christopher Hum (2005) and the Director of Development, Dr Anne Lyon (2001) travelled to Hong Kong and Beijing. In a trip extended as a result of the Volcanic ash cloud, they met Caians and supporters of the College in both places and attended a Dinner for Members of the Court of Benefactors, hosted by Nick Sallnow-Smith (1969) in Hong Kong. Caians should make a note that next year’s Hong Kong lunch will take place on Tuesday 29 March, with the dinner for Members of the Court of Benefactors on Monday 28 March. The party will also visit Kuala Lumpur for a reception for Caians there on Friday 31 March. In the last year the Master, Dr Anne Lyon and Deputy Director, James Howell (2009) made two trips to the United States, hoping to meet as many Caians as possible. The first trip, in December 2009 coincided with the Cambridge in America celebrations to mark the end of the 800th Anniversary of the University. As well as meeting up with Caians at the New York Reception, they attended the gala event at Gotham Hall, at which Sir David Frost (1958) was a speaker. In October 2010 more than forty Caians and friends gathered at the New York Yacht Club, for a reception generously hosted by the Honorable John Lehman (1965) and Professor Peter Walker (1960). The reception was held in the Model Room, designed by Whitney Warren in 1898 which is decorated with carved seaweed, shells and sea-monsters and has three huge galleon-style bay windows extending out over the sidewalk of West 44th Street. The display cases house the world’s largest collection of model yachts and the walls hold more than 1200 half-models of yacht and ship hulls. The Master and Dr Lyon moved on to Vancouver where a further twenty six Caians and supporters met at the residence of the British Consul General, Mr Alex Budden.

his kind words and graciously pointed out that engaging our alumni to support the life of the College is a team effort on the part of the whole of the Development Office. Since the launch of the Anne Lyon, it is clear that she has been a welcome and useful addition to the collection, with Caughlin Butler (2008), Women’s Captain, saying: “The Caius women are delighted to have the use of the Anne Lyon in their regular training. They rowed their first race in the boat in University IVs, and plan on using her extensively during the rest of the term’s training.” Meanwhile Roma Kanabar (2009), a member of the 2010 Telephone Campaign student caller team, enthuses about the new Four: “It’s been really useful to the girls: helping to motivate the crew and facilitate improvement; it inspired me to take part in the Telephone Campaign this year, having felt the positive impact of last year’s campaign.” Three months later a second gathering took place to launch the Jack McDonald, an Empacher Eight, which was purchased thanks to the generosity of Martin Wade. The new Eight was in honour of Revd Jack

McDonald (1995), who in his decade as Senior Treasurer of the CBC saw the First VIIIs achieve fifteen headships in eight years and earn the right to construct a clock tower on the Caius Boathouse. While Jack himself has in the past modestly attributed the success of the Boat Club during his Treasurership to “the determination, effort, maturity and grace of the students of Caius”, to the Captains and to the boatman, Tony Baker, it was nevertheless agreed by all that his own part in the triumphs of the CBC should also be acknowledged. So it was that Jack McDonald, accompanied by members of his family and joined by various members and friends of the Boat Club came together in May to celebrate the launch of the new Eight, which he said “proved to be a very proud moment”. The Jack McDonald has been most warmly received by the current generation of Caius Boaties. Men’s Captain Finlay Carson (2008) tells us: “It’s an amazing boat, and an inspiration to race in something carrying the name of someone who gave so much to Caius Boat Club”.

embers and friends of Caius Boat Club gathered at the Boathouse on Sunday 21 February to launch its magnificent new Empacher Ladies’ Four. The launch party consisted of the Master, Sir Christopher Hum (2005); the President of CBC, Martin Wade (1962); the Senior Treasurer, Dr Jimmy Altham (1965) and the Director of Development, Dr Anne Lyon (2001) after whom the boat was named. In his speech Dr Altham thanked Anne for her long-term support of CBC and particularly for including the proposal to purchase the new boat as one of the projects funded by the Caius Fund 2009, as part of the 2009 Telephone Campaign. The new Four will make a huge contribution to enabling our rowing women to achieve their full potential, and Jimmy emphasised that it was most fitting to name it after Anne in recognition of her work for the College. Replying, Anne thanked Jimmy for

John Kelly (1958) It all began in the summer of 1960, when a crowd of us set off in Tom McCallum’s Ford Prefect in search of a different pub for Sunday lunch. We ended up at The Fish & Duck, a truly quaint establishment situated at Popes Corner, the junction of the Cam, the Great Ouse and the Old West River at Holt Fen near Ely. This was a pub for river traffic and the only road access was over a rough track and an unmanned level crossing. All quite idyllic! About a year later we decided to revisit the Fish & Duck and after the long trek we were greatly disappointed to find the pub empty and abandoned, although the doors were open and the pubs table and chairs were all in place. Our disappointment changed to excitement when I suggested: “What a venue for a party!” And that was it. It was our last year and what a way to celebrate the end of three splendid years at Caius. The hosts were centred upon those who had digs at 2 Mortimer Road: Charles Usher, James Learmonth, Paul Scammell, myself, Jim Honeybone, John Blowers and Nick Jackson. Drawing up a guest list was an early and challenging task. We had a large number of mutual friends, so we all made a list of our top ten guests and those that appeared more than once were definitely in. Then we allowed each host to pick some individual guests. The next problem was to find out how many guests would like to bring their own partner – in those days almost exclusively blokes bringing birds. I still have a list in James Learmonth’s tidy script of the guest list with three columns indicating attendance, partners and travel arrangements. Our first thought was to rent a train to take guests up to the nearby unmanned level crossing, a procedure which seemed all the more likely to succeed since the father of one of our Newnham friends – Jo TwisletonWykeham-Fiennes, happened to run the Eastern Region of British Rail. Following Jo’s approach to her father, Charles Usher and I were summoned to the railway headquarters in Cambridge to be advised by some sombre gentlemen that our scheme was doomed. Coal trains ran up and down that line every 10 minutes during the night and they could not contemplate party-going undergraduates scampering around the railway line. In addition they said that the police had determined that we could not use the pub for our party, since it was licensed premises and we did not have the licence. Plan B involved renting a double-decker bus to take our invitees to a spot upriver from the Fish & Duck and then to get a boat to ferry them down to the pub. The next challenge was to convert a capacious outside shed from what had been a chicken house to an area where we could dance. This involved a few heavy hours of manual labour digging out the chicken litter and washing the place down. The day of the party dawned fine and we were on a euphoric crest of a wave when the police arrived and said they could not let the party go ahead as they were worried about too many people using the unmanned level crossing. We said there was no way we could cancel the party. Over a hundred people were coming from far and wide and it would be a physical impossibility to stop them coming. We came up with a compromise which was grudgingly accepted; Paul Scammell volunteered to man the level crossing until all the people had arrived and then again at the end when they were leaving. Tom McCallum had managed to purloin an old upright piano from somewhere and a pick-up truck. So one was lashed to the other and a merry convoy set off with Tom sitting at the piano playing away as the truck set off down the Ely road. As the weather was fine we just emptied the pub of all its tables and chairs and put them on the grass outside. We had lots of wine and nibbles and the guests rolled in. A surprising number of them had managed to find cars or get lifts in one and so our extravagant plans for bus and ferry were taken advantage of by only about a dozen people. A memorable evening was had by all and the hosts certainly felt that they achieved all their expectations in spite of all the pitfalls put in their way. The Fish & Duck did re-open and was a favourite watering hole of inland waterway enthusiasts, but closed again last year and has since been demolished.

The quest to understand nature is symbolized in an aesthetically most pleasing and scientifically astute way by the sundials of the Gate of Honour. Whilst the gate was built more than four hundred years ago in 1575, the sundials that we see today are a result of a restoration carried out in 1963. Since then they have been watching silently over many rotations of the planet; remarkable keepers of the constancy of time and reminders of nature’s fundamentals beneath changing human behaviours. I remember these sundials with great affection. They remind me of some of the most carefree and enjoyable years of my life, although I don’t suppose I realised it then. The sundials are one of the most graphic memories I have of Caius, one that I am fond of and that I treasure. And of course this resonates with the physicist inside me; I was at the Cavendish from 1988-93. Much later, it dawned on me one day, that I now owned a stone wall myself, one that was located in the northern hemisphere and looking south, and one on which I was free to do to anything I wanted, as it was a part of my own home, facing the garden. Some readers may guess what is to come next, but how on earth do you calculate the exact angles of the hour lines of a sundial, from its geographic position and the orientation of its surface in space? Not an insignificant problem. However, Fate had made provision, in the form of my Cambridge love Christina who later decided to marry me and has populated the house in question with three children, but her key merit (from this particular point of view, I should say) was that she had a father who turned out to be not only a scientist in fluid dynamics, but a keen amateur astronomer as well. Dr Theo Hottner has a passion for sundials, had all the right formulae and passed the knowledge of how to apply them on to me. As a result, the summer of 2005 saw me up a ladder, manoeuvring rulers, fine paintbrushes and light blue and gold paint, trying to recreate this very personal memory of mine.

In Issue 7, Brian Whitaker (1957) wrote about the Cuppers winning athletics team of 1958, and how Harold Abrahams (1919), winner of the gold medal for the 100m at the Paris Olympics of 1924 and hero of the 1981 Oscar winning film Chariots of Fire, attended the celebratory dinner. Ronnie Thomson, the Captain of the team which actually won both Cuppers and the Inter-College Relay competitions, sent in his Menu for the dinner, signed by many members of the team and also by Abrahams himself. Ronnie remembers that during the course of dinner, Abrahams pointed out that the last time Caius had achieved this Athletics double, was under his captaincy in 1922. Harry Knox (1955), who was also present, remembers most of the names, many of whom were better known for their prowess at other sports. Thomson, of course, was a famous international rugby wing three quarter and Pat Mills (1957) was another wing, winning rugby blues in ’58 & ’59. Brion Weller (1955) was a burly second row forward whilst Roger Christian (1957) was a fine scrum half and golf blue. Jeremy Procter (1956) was Captain of College cricket and the University hockey.

Although it is 46 years since we left the UK we continue to enjoy hearing news from Cambridge and on trips back, if there is an opportunity to visit, we do so. A must is a walk around Newnham Cottage where, for a time, we lived in Flat F. On our most recent visit, two years ago, we noticed that there were “Dr” residents as opposed to our time when it was “hope to be Drs!”. We recall that Canon Hugh Montefiore (1954) recognized the need for accommodation for married research students and was instrumental in having Newnham Cottage used for the purpose. And it was a house with a history; we recall seeing a photo of Lord Rutherford sitting outside the big downstairs centre window. Compared with our previous accommodations in Cambridge it was sheer luxury and its location was spectacular. Norman, the head porter at Harvey Court, took us under his wing and we particularly remember the lovely garden and gardeners. This oasis was to be put to good use by us when, in March 1964, Newnham Cottage gained another resident with the arrival of our new son, Gareth Paul. When he would not go to sleep at night Daddy and other residents would walk him around the grounds! We remember several weeks after his birth, amid our coming to grips with parenthood and nappies everywhere, a surprise visit from Lady Mott. Paul was soon joined by Rachel de la Hoyde, daughter of the Rev’d Denys de la Hoyde (1954) who made her entry into the world in Newnham Cottage. Later Denys christened Paul in Gonville & Caius Chapel, not in a font but in a silver bowl borrowed from the Master’s Lodge. It was very sad leaving Flat F, but we would not have been able to stay there indefinitely, and noone can take from us the wonderful, happy memories we have of this time in our lives. We will always be grateful to the College for giving us this privilege.

In the article entitled Bathing Bill in the last issue of Once a Caian…, I was interested to read that this memorable event occurred on 10 November 1950. The fact that this day would have been a Friday leads me to believe that the stunt in question took place not in 1950, but in 1951. To corroborate this, I have a collection of 10 colour slides taken on 10 November 1951, a Saturday, of Poppy Day in Cambridge which include a photo of Julian Walker, dressed as an Arab, giving Bill Packer a bath outside Caius. I wrote the date on the backs of the slides soon after they came back from being developed. Most of the photos are not directly connected with Caius but give a good idea of the fund raising activities for the Earl Haig Poppy Fund. One however, shows a great Caius success on the Cam; Jeremy Kilner (1949) winning the barrel race across the Cam at Barrel the Mill Pond. Jeremy told me that, as Honorary Secretary of Caius Boat Club, he was able to borrow a 56 lb weight from the boathouse which he put in the bottom of the barrel to stabilise it, thus enabling him to navigate to a famous win. The remaining slides show a procession of floats through town, led by Lady Godiva on a white horse, and including one of an Eastern potentate with his harem and another of a slave auction. I am amazed that the ladies of the harem were so scantily dressed on a cool November day! There was also “Punt Jousting” on the Backs and “Walking the Plank” off Silver Street Bridge into the cool waters of the Cam below.
