SPEECH BY THE PUBLIC ORATOR

The following speech was delivered by THE PUBLIC ORATOR in a Congregation held on
Saturday, 9 June, in presenting for the Honorary Degree of Doctor of
Science

Sir AARON KLUG, OM, FRS

Permulti hodie sunt ei qui adeo erinaceum Archilocheum magis quam volpem
aemulandum putent, ut de scientiae suae angustiis quodam modo glorientur,
tamquam si turpe sit complures Musarum provincias peragrare. hic qui adstat
istorum sive morositatem sive ignaviam redarguit, qui cum adulescens admodum
Aesculapi sectae adscribi vellet, tamen hominum physicorum chemicorum
biologorum disciplinam vicissim degustabat; nam quod litteris humanioribus
quoque incumbebat, nomismata Graeca adhuc intelligentia subtili usus et
aestimat et colligit, ita praetereo ut dignissimum esse memoria iudicem. itaque
hic, nullius addictus iurare in verba Minervae, ea autem studia persecutus quae
animum trahebant alliciebant detinebant, omnem cuiuscumque scientiae generis
appetitionem vehementer probat, quippe qui Ovidio poetae adsentitur monenti,
Qua non exspectes veniet tibi piscis ad hamum. in Africa Meridionali educatus
inter nos advenit, inter aequales eminebat, studiis reconditioribus insistebat;
tempus enim illud erat quo et hic et alibi summi acuminis homines permulta
corpusculorum genera quae nondum perspecta erant, nedum intellecta, et novis
ratiocinandi viis excogitatis et organis inventis quibus abstrusae structurae
dispicerentur, ita et scrutari et interpretari coeperant ut ipsius vitae arcana
detecta patefacerent. quorum hic quem praesento pars magna fuit, qui qua est
mentis subtilitate in corpusculis adeo exiguis ut oculorum aciem fugiant et
compagem et conformationem explicarit, quin etiam exemplaria solida
commentatus non animo tantum finxerit sed ad verum efficienda curaverit.
multa cristallorum genera obscuritate olim involuta ita inlustravit ut hac luce
clariora reddantur; id quod Lucretius poeta Taetri primordia viri adpellat, hic
qui nomen ipsum a sollertia ducit acutissime indagavit. neque hoc
praetermittendum, hunc iuniores in disciplina sua dedita cura fovere. haud
mirum igitur eum praemiis honoribusque plurimis esse cumulatum.

Praesento virum in scientia primarium Aaron Klug, Equitem Auratum, Ordini
Insigniter Meritorum adscriptum, Societatis Regiae Sodalem, Praemio
Nobeliano nobilitatum, ut admittatur honoris causa ad gradum
Doctoris in Scientia.


Paraphrase

There are plenty of people nowadays who prefer to emulate the Hedgehog
rather the Fox in the fable of Archilochus (`the Fox knows many things, but the
Hedgehog knows one big thing'), and who are inclined to pride themselves on
the specialised narrowness of their knowledge; as if there were something
shameful about the mastery of several areas. Sir Aaron Klug is a standing
rebuke to the pedantry, or the timidity, of such people. From an early age he
set out to be a doctor, but he took courses in physics, chemistry, and biology;
I say nothing of his literary interests, or of the fact that he is a collector and
connoisseur of ancient Greek coins. I say nothing of these things—but I
expect them to be remembered. So it is that Sir Aaron, who did not confine
himself to any one science but pursued the studies which appealed to him and
interested him, approves of every form of scientific curiosity. No doubt he
would echo the words of the poet Ovid: Where you least expect, a fish will
come to your hook. He was an undergraduate in South Africa, came to this
country, where he was an outstanding student, and applied himself to research
in a very difficult area. It was the period when great scientists were studying
microscopic bodies which had never been observed before, much less
understood: it was a time of new optical instruments and of new theoretical
approaches, which together made possible the observation and analysis of
hidden structures and so gave insight into the secrets of life itself. In all this Sir
Aaron played a considerable role. With great intellectual power he succeeded
in clarifying the structure and composition of microscopic bodies, and he
created three-dimensional models which illustrated his discoveries. His work
made many kinds of crystal, hitherto obscure, as clear as day. He traced the
structure and the course of the tobacco mosaic virus: the `atoms of grim virus',
in the phrase of the poet Lucretius. It is no accident that the German word
klug means clever. It should not be forgotten
that he is a devoted fosterer of the careers of young scientists. All in all, it is
not surprising that he has received so many high academic honours.

I present an outstanding scientist, Sir Aaron Klug, OM, FRS, Nobel Laureate,
for admission to the honorary degree of Doctor of Science.

REVIEW OF THE BOTANIC
GARDEN

As part of the University's programme of regular departmental reviews, the
Botanic Garden will be reviewed during Michaelmas Term by a panel appointed
and chaired by the Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Academic Services and University
Collections).

The panel's terms of reference are:

`To review the governance, management, and staffing of the Botanic
Garden; its relationship with other bodies (including those in the Life and
Environmental Sciences Division and in the Academic Services and University
Collections, and Magdalen College); its roles in conservation, teaching, and
research and its obligations to its local, national, and international public, and
the balance between these functions; and to make recommendations, bearing in
mind where there are financial implications the level of resources likely to be
available within the University and possible alternative ways of raising funds
to implement them.'

Anyone wishing to make a submission to the review panel should send it
by 26 October to the panel's Secretary, Dr N.P. Berry, University Offices,
Wellington Square, Oxford OX1 2JD (e-mail: nigel.berry@admin.ox.ac.uk).

ISIS INNOVATION LIMITED

Ewert House, Ewert Place, Summertown, Oxford OX2 7BZ

Isis Innovation, a wholly-owned company of the University, was established in
1988. The company has been formed to exploit know-how arising out of
research funded by the UK Government through the Research Councils and
funded by other bodies where the rights are not tied. The function of the
company is to ensure that the results of research bring rewards to Oxford, and
to the inventors, who are given a financial incentive for exploitation.

Isis seeks licensees willing to pay lump sums and/or royalties for the use
of know-how arising out of research. Isis also exploits the intellectual property
of the University by setting up individual companies using venture capital or
development capital funds.

Isis' services are also available to individuals
who wish to exploit the results of research supported by non-Research Council
sources, when there are no prior conditions on the handling of the intellectual
property rights. Isis Innovation has at its disposal a small pre-seedcorn fund for
paying the costs of protecting intellectual property rights and for taking work
to a stage where its potential can be assessed.

Isis finds industrial partners to ensure that new ideas can be developed
for market requirements. The company has established the Oxford Innovation
Society for major industrial companies, so that they can have a window on
Oxford technology and an opportunity to license and invest where appropriate.

A brochure explaining Isis' activities is available. If you wish to
receive a copy, please contact Isis (details below).

Members of the University should contact the Managing Director if they
wish to take advantage of the services that Isis provides. (Telephone: (2)80830,

family of large carnivorous lizards.


Yungas 2001

Ross C. Macleod, Wolfson College

This is a joint expedition from Oxford and Glasgow Universities which aims to
carry out the first assessment of the biological diversity and conservation
importance of the yungas forests of the Cordillera de Mosetenes, the largest
ecologically unexplored area in the Bolivian Andes. Survey work will include
inventories of the amphibians, birds, insects, plants, and reptiles of the area.


Taiwan 2001

Andrew M. Limond, St Anne's College

The expedition will seek to discover the links between ethnic identity and
boat-building (plus other aspects of material culture) on Orchid Island (Lanyu)
off the south-east coast of Taiwan.


Svalbard 2001

Kirsteen J. Tinto, Worcester College

Team members will be making a small-scale geological map of an area in the
West of Spitzbergen, concentrating on the kinematics of the faulting in the
region.


Kasokwa 2001

Ella K. Chase, St Anne's College

The expedition will conduct an investigation into human--chimpanzee conflict in

ASHMOLEAN (SACKLER) LIBRARY


Opening arrangements for the Sackler
Library

The Library wishes to confirm its plans to move into the Sackler Library in the
Long Vacation of 2001. The usual Gazette notice for Long
Vacation hours of University Libraries will give the opening hours of the
constituent collections, the projected date of closure and move into the Sackler,
and the subsequent opening hours of the Sackler.

Apart from complete closure during Week 10 (25--9 June), the Main
Library will remain open with discrete sections of stock unavailable while being
transferred during the following weeks. The other constituent collections will
each be closed for two to three weeks, and the move should be completed by
mid-August. However, as the timetable has been formulated around the
minimum possible periods of closure, all parts are subject to change according
to progress with the move. For more detailed information and updates, please
consult the Web-site http://www.saclib.ox.ac.uk/sackler.html.

Although the Library staff will make every effort to maintain services
through this period, readers are requested to minimise their use of the Library
in June, July, and August. Visitors are requested to check the Web-site before
making arrangements to travel to Oxford and, as a precaution, to avoid
Mondays 2, 9, 16 July, 6, 13 August, and the following Tuesdays. All parts of
the Library will be closed on Saturdays from 30 June to 22 September, as well
as 27 August, 3--4 September, and some or all of 24 September.
