Sir J.R.G. Bradfield 1935 1942 14th October 2014 Collapsed and died at the age of 89 in the Great Court of Trinity College. From the Cambridge News, Oct 14th 2014: "The founding father of the world-famous Cambridge Science Park, John Bradfield, has died aged 89. He collapsed last night (Ocrober 13th 2014) in the Great Court at Trinity College, his alma mater – on the way to a dinner for tenants of the park. Cambridge born and bred, Sir John came up with the idea of the huge business enterprise – the first of its kind in England – at the start of the 1970s. At the time, he was the bursar of Trinity College, which had owned most of the Science Park land off Milton Road since the mid 16th century. He proposed the scheme to the college in 1970, and building work started a few years later. Today, about 100 companies are based there, including some of Britain's top technology and pharmaceutical firms. As a child, Sir John went to the Cambridge and County High School for Boys, now Hills Road Sixth Form College. He took a scholarship entrance exam for Trinity, and went there in 1942 to study zoology, biology and physiology. After his degree, he took up research work, one of his studies looking at the strength of egg shells – using chickens loaned to him by his mother, and ferried to his lab from the family home in Oxford Road in a basket perched on his bike. Later he became junior bursar at the college, where he was responsible for many building and refurbishment projects, and then became its senior bursar. During his time in that role, he not only got the Science Park off the ground, but was also instrumental in the development of Trinity's land at Felixstowe, helping to turn it into Europe's biggest container port. Tributes have poured in for Sir John, who was knighted in 2006. Between 1993 and 1997, he was chairman of the Cambridge University Hospitals trust. Sir John was also a trustee of the hospital's charity for 14 years. In 1997 he became a founding trustee of the Fund for Addenbrooke's, now called the Addenbrooke's Charitable Trust. He retired as trustee in 2011. In 2008, Sir John won the Cambridge News Business Awards Lifetime Achievement award."
