Nuffield College, Oxford


    MORE information relating to the proposed college for research in social studies, to be called Nuffield College (see NATUBE of October 23, p. 697), is now available. The erection and equipment of the College and the laying out of its grounds will be in the hands of the governing body of the University, the Hebdomadal Council. It shall from time to time appoint the warden, the fellows and other officers, and generally take charge. It is proposed to have maxima of twelve official fellows, eight faculty fellows, twenty visiting fellows, and forty students. Women will be eligible for fellowships and studentships. The official fellows will be whole-time research workers, the faculty fellows teaching members of other colleges who do work on social studies, and the visiting fellows the possibly non-academic persons from outside. The students will be at least in their third term of residence at the University and working for research degrees. All classes of fellows (but not women fellows) will be entitled to rooms and dinner in college and students may also have rooms there. The visiting fellows and the students will receive honoraria or emoluments of the order of fifty pounds per annum. Lord Nuffield will be the first honorary fellow.
