This is the story of two projects in the mid-20th century to create a world-leading technological college – which, unexpectedly, led to the founding of a new college at Cambridge.
It is also the story of how those projects navigated the aspirations and anxieties of post-War Britain, grappling with the Cold War, the end of empire, and a faltering economy.
Professor Mark Goldie is an historian and long-time Fellow of Churchill. He is (very slowly) writing a history of the origins of the College.
