Botanic Garden

A formal physic garden was first established on a 5 acre plot of ground, purchased by Dr Richard Walker, Vice-Master of Trinity College, and given to the University in 1762, in trust 'for the purpose of a public Botanic Garden'. In 1831, largely at the encouragement of the then Professor of Botany, John Stevens Henslow, 38 acres off Trumpington Road were acquired as a larger, more open site for a Botanic Garden: its location to this day. The first permanent Botanic Garden Syndicate was appointed in 1855. The bequest of Reginald Cory in 1934 massively aided garden development after World War II and the expansion of buildings. For the history of the Garden to c. 1960 see S. M. Walters, The Shaping of Cambridge Botany (CUP, 1981) and for contemporary information go to


The post was until 1919 usually occupied by skilled non-graduates. It was re-designated 'Superintendent' in 1919, and subsequent Curators were members of the University's academic staff.

Fitzwilliam Museum

Founded by the bequest of Richard, Viscount Fitzwilliam, who died 5 February 1816, leaving both his collections and the annual proceeds of £100,000 South Sea Annuities for the erection of a Museum. After difficulties in securing a suitable site, building began in 1837, but was not complete in 1847 when the collections were moved in. The Entrance Hall was completed in 1875. The bequest of Charles Brinsley Marlay (d. 1912) comprised not only his art collections but a sum for enlarging the building (the Marlay Gallery).


Appointment is by a Board of Electors. The holders of this post are also Administrative Officers. From 1913, as a result of the Marlay bequest, the title of Marlay Curator was added to that of Director.

The first University Observatory was situated on top of the Great Gate of Trinity College, started in 1710, but was not completed until 1739. It seems to have been little used, and it was dismantled in 1797. The present Observatory was built on Madingley Road in 1823. The Solar Physics Observatory moved to same site from London in 1913. They combined as 'Observatories' in 1947 and amalgamated with Institute of Theoretical Astronomy to form the Institute of Astronomy in 1972. See the Historical Register, pp. 215-20.

Scott Polar Research Institute

An offer by the Trustees of the British Museum to give to the Institute that balance (over £2000) remaining of the sum subscribed to meet the costs of working out the collections and publishing the scientific results of Captain Scott's 'Terra Nova' expedition, was accepted by grace 1 of 5 December 1931. The building in Lensfied Road, partly financed from funds supplied by the Trustees of the Captain Scott Memorial Fund and partly from a donation of £4000 from the Pilgrim Foundation, was opened in November 1934. For a brief account of the Institute see H. G. R. King, 'Polar Studies in Cambridge', Cambridge 7 (1980) pp. 38-45.

University Library

Originally situated on the site now known as the Old Schools, the first portion of which was given to the University shortly before 1278 by Nigel de Thornton, Doctor of Medicine. Remaining areas were acquired from Trinity Hall in 1421, from the purchase of the garden of Crouched Hostel in 1432, from land owned by Corpus Christi College in 1459 and, finally, by the purchase of the Old Court of King's College in 1829. The first (northern) part of the building was completed by c. 1400 and the whole eastern court was complete by 1473. These buildings were to house both the Library, the schools of Civil and Canon Law and of Divinity, and the Regent House and University Chapel. The library gradually took over the entire building, along with King's Old Court and the Cockerell building (started in 1837). For a full account of the library to 1900 see Cambridge University Library: a history, Vol. 1, From the beginnings to the Copyright Act of Queen Anne, by J. C. T. Oates; and Vol. 2, The Eighteenth and Nineteenth Centuries, by David McKitterick (CUP, 1986). The staff of the Scientific Periodicals Library became a part of the University Library in 1978.
