Professor Sluart Campbell, I1ead of Ihe Departmenl ofObslelrics and G)no"cology, was on Radio 4's Today programme outlining how tudie purporting to how how ultrasound scan on unborn babie can effect their size at birth and also could cause babies to be left handed, were defective In their de ign and therefore these findings were probably due to chance.

quarter centur of anagement at Kina's The Managemenl Cenlre has now become a fully-fledged Deparlmenl of Ihe College, allhough il will slill be known as 'The Management Cenlre'. Here Senior LeClurer John Mark reviews Ihe hislory of Management teaching al King's and describes currenl deveJopmenls.

T

he origin of management teaching at the College can be traced to the decision in 1969 by the Department of Food cience at Queen Elizabeth College to introduce an undergraduate degree course in 'Food cience (with specialisation in Management Studies)' in order to boost their less than buoyant student recruitment. Two staff were recruited - a management specialist (Frank Brown) and an economist (John Mark) - while staff from the Department of ~utrition provided teaehing in psychology and sociology. The success of the new degree prompted Brian Meek, then of the Department of Mathematics and now of the Computing Centre, to suggest the establish ment of the 'Mathematics and Management' degree, and further degree in 'Chemistry with :v1anagement' and 'Physics with Management' were soon added. Two further staff were brought in: Roger trange (the current Head of Department) and Ray Holland, who transferred from Chelsea College. ew developments have continued apace since the merger in 1985, with the Departments of Computer Science, Engineering and French all introducing new 'With :v1anagement' degree courses. The popularity of these courses, however, provided the College with a

page 4

conundrum. Wa the intere tin management education a temporary fad which would soon pas, or was it a longterm trend? A erie of Working Partie , tanding Committee, Peer Reviews and other ad hoc bodies all considered this question, and many people were unconvinced that the popularity of management education would be sustained. Yet applications and tudent number have continued to grow. In 19 9, the first intake of tudentS was welcomed to the ingle Ilonour 'Bu ine Management' degree, and there were over 2,000 application for the 50 places available in the October 1993 intake. :"eedle to say, the ucces ful candidates all ha e excellent A level grades. A further 40 tudent are recruited annually to the 'Mathematics and Management' degree, and 75 studentS to the various 'With Management'degree . Each October thu brings ome 165 new undergraduate students, and we thus have contact with some 500 undergraduate students at any point in time (a sizeable proportion of the total undergraduate population of the College). In addition. a new MSc in International Management has been introduced with effect from October 1993. The cour e builds upon our experience of teaching management to science tudentS, and put particular emphasl on the Issue ral ed by the management of science and technology in an international environment. Throughout this period, staff number have al 0 increa ed, albeit at a lower rate than the growth in student numbers, and today the Management Centre has 11 established academic pOStS. As the staffing level ha increased so too ha the re earch outpUt (too late for the last Re earch As essment Exercise, but in good time for the next!). Two major ESRC-sponsored books have been published this year. The first is an 800-page Review of The Food Induslries, written by John Mark and Roger trange. The stud was

tIt te

commi ioned b the Royal tati tical ociet and the E RC, and was pub" hed by Chapman & Hall a volume 2 of the authoritative eries of UK tati tical Reviews which together form a revised ver ion of Professor Mauflce Kendall's seminal work in the early po t-War year. The econd is a -50-page study of Japanese Manufacluring Inveslmenl in Europe: ils Impacl on Ihe UK Economy, by Roger trange, which ha been published as part of the important Routledge eries of tudie in International Busine s. The amount of re earch grant income has also increa ed substantially. Professor John MacDonald holds various grants from Ilealth Authorities, and has just returned from a four-month sabbatical in Canada where he wa in receipt of a $30000 grant to take up the Elia Chair at York 'niversity, Toronto, Ray Holland has grants of£30,000+ from the Everyman Centre and from CCETSW related to learning in organi ation and inter-profes ional competence in social work. David Grant has a grant from the luffield Foundation to look at trades unions and political funds ballots, and is awaiting funding for further work on Japanese employer relations practices in the UK. Jane Raybould has received £15,000 a her hare of a major research project (coordinated by the London Business chool) to analy e the City of London's competitive po ition relative to other international financial centres. Chris torey has been commissioned to coauthor a book on the marketing of financial ervices. Patrick Barber has Intere tS in accounting education. the treatment of intangible assets and the accountants' duty of care to third parties. id Lowe is researching the business activities of Hong Kong firms. Finally, Cliff 0 wick's work is concerned with aspects of organisational behaviour, and hi recent work on age di crimination has attracted national press, television, and radio coverage.

Profe or Gardiner, who had initially helped organi e the accompanying exhibition, presented the lnwer ity of Chile with a 3' replica of the Linnean ociety's Darwin portrait. lIe al 0 presided over the first day's proceeding and delivered the opening lecture on behalf of Profe or Richard Darwin Ke nes, FR ,(who was unable to attend) - entitled The VO)oge oflhe Beagle. The importance of Darwin's sojourn in Chile can be gauged by the fact that before he left Iquique on 14 July 1 35 (that is two year before he adopted a transmutationist hypothe~is) he had already sketched a narrative history of the South American continent in which the commencement of life, the extinction of some species and the creation of others were all given a place. Before the cnd of the voyage hc had reached the conclu ion that the doctrinc of the fixity of species would have to be replaced by some form of evolutionary theory, though he had not arrived at any mechanism. he meetlllg and cxhlbltion received financial backing from both Foreign Office and Briti h Council while King' . in a goodwill gesture to the lniversity of Chile, pon ored Profe sor Gardiner. The exhibition together with the Darwin portrait will eventuall) be permanently housed in the :vi useo :'\ ational de I Iistoria "atural, antiago.

King' inger go to Paris

some of the achievemen of last ear. 'evertheles , I have been auditioning new tudents and as a re ult have appotnted eight to choral scholar hips. \-lember of the choir tudya wide range of ubjects. Y1 u ic i ,of cour e, well-repre enred a IS Theology, but there al 0 ingers reading Cia sics, Law, Ili tory, Language and :-'1edicine.

A

fter previou ucce ful trip to Italy and to the Lake Di trict, King's College Chapel hoir made its 1993 tour to Paris in the beginning of July. We pent only a few days in the city but our twO 'gigs', a concert in the American Epi copalian Cathedral and High Y1a sat :"otre Dame, filled our time and could not have been bettered. The annual tour i a very u eful time for the chOir; a culmination of the year's work, a time for fun and frolic, a few day of inten i e rehear ai, and an excellent opportun ity for the choir to gel ociallya well a mu icall)'. In this, our trip was no d isa ppoi ntmen t. Y1 uch preparation goes into a music tour, especially one abroad, and provision had to be made for hepherding twenty-five or so disparate soul through the maze that i the Paris Metro, without losing music, organist or Chaplain. David Trendell our director had put many hour into the organisation, liasing with musicians in Paris, and setting up our concerts and Y1ass, 0 that everything ran 5urpri ingly smoothly. inging in the magnificent American Cathedral, the huge edifice built by Street, wa a marvellous experience; our concert comprised a wide variety of sacred music from the early Renais ance to the twentieth century, the high pot being "Y1i5sa Euge 130ne" by the midixteenth century English compo er Christopher Tye, inter persed with motets by William l3yrd, including his sublime ettingof'lnfelix Ego'. Our audience, a mixture of tourists, and French and American resident, wa appreciative, and many of them were to be seen again at High Y1a at, 'otre Dame where we ang "Mis a Bell' Amfitrit' Altera'" by the prolific composer of the flemish chool, Orlandus La u. :"otre Dame i an enormous cathedral with a mas ive acou tic, perfect for thi beautifully

rc onant Renai sance work with its oaring 'cori- pezzati' harmonies. The Cathedral was packcd at this its main Sunday :vla s; even so, from thc quirc behind the 'ave altar, the congregation seemed mall and ver far away. It wa a splendid occasion, an experience to sta with the choir for a long time. This year' tour was for all of us a great ucces and ha given u an enormous boo t; it has al 0 set us up well for the new se sion, and for our work in the coming year. uzy Robin on hoir President 1993

Other Choir ne\\ ichaelma Term i always the busiest of the year for the choir. culminating as it does in the three Ad ent carol ervice (December 1-3). It i also a term that can often see a sub tantial change in personnel. Fortunately, la t ummer there were very few lea er which mean that there is a welcome en e of

I often wonder how widely the activitie of the choir are known by member of the College. We sing twiee each week in the College Chapel - for E ensong on Tue day at 5.30 and at the ollege Eucharist on Wedne days at 1.10 - as well as for many extra services and events both in and out ide of College. Besides the earol services, the highpoint of this term include the setting of the Requiem Mass by Gabriel faurE with string on Tuesday :" ovember 2 and a concert in the Chapel of mu ic which we performed on the Pari tour on Thur day 0.'ovember I at 1 .00. Plans are al 0 underway to make a recording next ummer. Do feel free to come to the e events and in particular to our regular ervice in chapel. David Trendell College Organi t and Lecturer in Mu ic
