Footnotes

  • Caius (pronounced 'keys') is the fourth oldest surviving College in the University of Cambridge. The College was first founded as Gonville Hall by Edmund Gonville, Rector of Terrington St Clement in Norfolk, in 1348, and refounded in 1557 by John Caius as Gonville and Caius College. It has produced twelve Nobel Prize winners (more than any Oxbridge College bar Trinity College, Cambridge), including Sir James Chadwick, discoverer of the neutron, Sir Howard Florey, co-discoverer of penicillin, Francis Crick, co-discoverer of the structure of DNA, and the economist Joseph Stiglitz. Notable current and old members include Harold Abrahams, the Olympic sprinter immortalised in the film Chariots of Fire, Homi Bhabha, the founder of India's nuclear programme, Alain de Botton, philosopher, Jimmy Carr, comedian, Kenneth Clarke, Lord Chancellor, Mark Damazer, former controller of Radio 4, David Frost, broadcaster, Stephen Hawking, physicist, Robin Holloway, composer, Simon Sebag Montefiore, historian, Jonathan Sacks, Chief Rabbi and John Venn, inventor of the Venn diagram.
