Manchester-born Sir Joseph John Thomson (1858-1940), discoverer of the electron, was one of the most important Cambridge physicists of the later nineteenth and first half of the twentieth centuries. Succeeding Lord Rayleigh as Cavendish Professor of Experimental Physics, he directed the research interests of the laboratory, and eight of his students, including Rutherford, went on to win Nobel Prizes, as Thomson himself did in 1906. He was knighted in 1908, received the Order of Merit in 1912, and became Master of Trinity College in 1918. He also served as President of the Royal Society from 1915 from 1920 and was a government advisor on scientific research during World War I. This autobiography, published in 1936, covers all aspects of his career - his student days in Manchester, arrival in Cambridge, and growing international reputation. It gives a fascinating picture of Cambridge life and science at a dynamic period of development.

This is the text of the Rede Lecture given in the University of Cambridge by the Rt.Hon.Lord Jenkins of Hillhead on 10 May 1988. Lord Jenkins takes as his theme the relationship between Oxford and Cambridge over the centuries in an attempt to analyze their similarities and differences. Characteristically, Lord Jenkins is not just concerned with the universities' response to and shaping of education, but with their role as the nursery of great statesmen and public figures, and it is in this that he sees one of the essential differences between the Oxford and Cambridge styles.
