    LORD NUFFIELD has offered £1,000,000 to the University of Oxford (including a site valued at £100,000) for the building of a new college to be devoted to the collaboration, particularly in social (including economic and political) studies, of theoretical students and practical men of affairs. The site is situated to the west of Oxford between Worcester College and Pembroke College. Two further bequests by Lord Nuffield include £100,000 for the erection and equipment of a new laboratory of physical chemistry and £200,000 for the erection of buildings at hospitals associated with the medical research scheme endowed by him in 1936.
