Oxford Mathematics and Mathematicians


This is the text of a lecture by the late I. W. Busbridge, who was appointed to a lecturership in mathematics at St Hugh’s College in 1938, and who was a fellow of the College from 1945 to 1970. She died in 1988. It is reproduced here without revision, as it was printed in a Mathematical Institute pamphlet in 1974. Much has happened in Oxford since then, but her account is still of great interest.
