When St Catherine's College was first being envisaged, creating an undergraduate body with an equal number of science and arts students was at the forefront of our Founder's minds.

Sir Humphry Davy embodied that integration of the disciplines. Sir John Meurig Thomas FRS traces Davy's path from his lowly origins in Cornwall to the pinnacles of international fame. Part of a series celebrating 50 years of St Catherine's College.
