OUTLINE OF THE CAREER OF THOMAS RICHARD EDMUND SOUTHWOOD Thomas Richard Edmund Southwood was born on 20 June 1931 at Northfleet, Gravesend, Kent. He was educated at Gravesend Grammar School, and at the Imperial College of Science and Technology, London, where he graduated in 1952 with first class honours in Zoology. He had already, in 1948 as a schoolboy, and later during university vacations, spent time as a voluntary worker in the Entomology Department at Rothamsted Experimental Station, Harpenden, Hertfordshire. He returned there in October 1952 with an Agricultural Research Council scholarship as a full-time research student, under the overall supervision on C.B. Williams though working in practice under the supervision of C.G. Johnson. He completed his thesis, on ‘Some studies on the systematics and ecology of heteroptera’, in 1955 and returned to Imperial College Silwood Park - initially still supported by an ARC grant - to work on frit fly ecology with W.F. Jepson. could not be taken up until January 1956. His subsequent career at Imperial College advanced In September 1955 Southwood had married Alison Harden, whom he had met at Rothamsted. He suffered his first major illness - appendicitis followed by peritonitis - on his honeymoon and was seriously ill for several months. His appointment at Imperial College, scheduled for October 1955, rapidly through lecturer to reader and professor; in 1967 he succeeded O.W. Richards as Head of Dean of the Royal College of Science 1971-1972, Acting Head of the Biochemistry Department his Ph.D. studies on the migrations and Southwood’s interest in natural history, based on the observation of plants and creatures around his childhood home, began at a very young age. His early entomological work was on the morphology In 1979 Southwood moved to Oxford as Linacre Professor of Zoology and Fellow of Merton College, serving the University as Vice-Chancellor 1989 - 1993 and then as Pro-Vice-Chancellor. He was and taxonomy of Hemiptera-Heteroptera. Aspects of the Department of Zoology and Applied Entomology, and also served as Director of Silwood Park, 1973-1974 and Chairman of the Division of Life Sciences, Imperial College 1974-1977. also President of the Campaign for Oxford. T.R.E. Southwood NCUACS 72/1/98 movements of insects and the ecology of field-margins suggested long-term research into habitat and the influence of environment, whether natural or man-made, on population density and survival. Examples are the study of insect fauna in different species of tree, and the impact of agriculture on the natural ecosystem shown in the decline of the partridge population in Western Europe. His interests extended to the dynamics of natural populations and communities and he was particularly concerned with the appropriate methodology (for both measurement and analysis) and the development of models to provide a general synthesis (e.g. his habitat templet). Studies on the structural dynamics of natural systems and the problems of maintaining a balance between these and the demands of man have continued as the basis of Southwood’s scientific research and of latter are his chairmanship of the Royal Commission on Environmental Pollution (especially its recommendation on the reduction of lead in petrol), his chairmanship of the Anglo-Scandinavian committee on ‘acid rain’, and his chairmanship Examples of the his public work. of the government’s Round Table on Sustainable Development. Many of his keynote lectures over the last twenty years have dealt with environmental concerns. Southwood was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1977 and has received many Honorary Fellowships and Doctorates from universities in the UK and overseas.

It is, however, much enriched by Southwood’s own autobiographical accounts of his early life and the formative influences on him Much of the material is of recent date and has been received piecemeal; thus several sections have from a youthful - even precocious - interest in natural history and especially entomology, via up to about 1955, and his reflections on key episodes, committees or events in T.R.E. Southwood NCUACS 72/1/98 Several of these accounts, many written specially for the collection, are to be found in the Biographical Section A, but others are in the sections to which they refer. Several of the accounts , supported as they are by documentation, provide interesting evidence of changing social structure and attitudes during this period - competition in research, the decline of paternalism and the growth of rights (employee and student), attitudes to safety and risk (home laboratories, exposure to bombing, a boy wandering in the countryside, etc), the “gentlefolk” class. Additional explanatory notes, information and cross-references are appended where appropriate to the separate sections, sub-sections and individual entries in the body of the catalogue. The following paragraphs are intended only to draw attention to items which may be of particular interest. Section A, Biographical and personal, furnishes a full overview of Southwood’s career from schooldays onward and includes some family material and his very early diaries and notebooks of natural history observations. There are also press-cuttings and photographs (the majority dated and described on the verso by Southwood) extending over the whole period. The numerous letters of congratulation on his appointments and honours are balanced by affectionate messages of goodwill when his health, never strong, led to periods of illness. international His House’ to be appointed for several centuries. His period as Vice-Chancellor overlapped with the Section B, Imperial College London, also includes a little material relating to Rothamsted memoranda and notebooks on Oxford affairs are included in this section. fund-raising ‘Campaign for Oxford’, of which he became President in 1990. Experimental Station. The sequences of correspondence and papers deal with Southwood’s own his undergraduate lectures, notes and essays 1949 - 1952, and of his own lecture and teaching career at Imperial College 1955 - 1979, appointments, promotions etc., and with the general work of the Department of Zoology and Silwood Park. There is also a sequence of notes and notebooks of Linacre Professor of Zoology, Fellow of Merton College, and Vice-Chancellor - the first non ‘Head of Section C, Oxford University, offers good coverage of Southwood’s career from 1979 - 1997, as * not all these accounts may yet be available (see p.2). all of which are published.

T.R.E. Southwood NCUACS 72/1/98 Section E, Lectures, speeches, addresses, begins in 1944 with the teenage Southwood’s talks on natural history to school societies and extends to 1995 covering the full range of his ecological and environmental interests, given to professional and learned societies and to less specialised audiences. Of interest are the extensive lectures given during Southwood’s year in Mexico and California 1964 - 1965. It should be noted that other lectures and addresses at conferences or meetings are to be found in the relevant sections. Section F, Publications and editorial, does not offer a full coverage of Southwood’s publications, which number 220 to date, but it includes useful material on his books: Land and water bugs of the British Isles, Life of the wayside and woodland, and especially of his influential Ecological methods first published in 1966. There is also correspondence, comment, advice etc. exchanged with publishers and journals, some having a long association with Southwood such as the Entomologist’s Monthly Magazine, the Journal of Animal Ecology and Oxford University Press, of which he was a Delegate for fourteen years. Section G, Societies and organisations, contains material relating to 34 organisations, some of it very brief or formal, but some representing long connections with Southwood as member, officer, contributor or advisor; these include the British Ecological Society, the British Empire Naturalists’ Association, the Field Studies Council, the Rhodes Trust, the Royal Entomological Society, the Royal Society and many others. includes major extended visits as Visiting Professor in Mexico, California, South Africa and at Cornell University, as well as shorter visits to give papers or invitation lectures or to chair meetings. Southwood’s public service commitments on boards and committees, and as Vice-Chancellor, also entailed extensive travel which is documented in the relevant sections. Sections J - N deal specifically with Southwood’s service on official bodies or specific projects. Southwood was appointed a Commissioner to 1985 when he took up his appointment as Chairman Section J, Royal Commission on Environmental Pollution, covers the period from 1974 when Section H, Visits and conferences, covers both UK and overseas conferences 1960 - 1995, and He established an Section K, National Radiological Protection Board, covers the period 1984 - 1995. Southwood was a of the National Radiological Protection Board, the main concentration of the papers being 1981 - 1985 when he was Chairman of the Commission. Three major Reports were published during his Chairmanship, and several research projects launched. The 1983 Report ‘Lead in the Environment’ was influential, being immediately accepted as the basis for public policy. member of the Board from 1980 and served as Chairman from 1985 to 1994. T.R.E. Southwood NCUACS 72/1/98 ‘Environmental Issues Panel’ with a wider membership including ‘Green’ organisations, and chaired an International Conference on the Biological Effects of lonising Radiation organised by Friends of the Earth and Greenpeace International, which is documented here. Section L, Surface Water Acidification Programme, relates to a tripartite research programme, conducted by the Norwegian and Swedish Academies of Sciences and the Royal Society (for the UK), set up to investigate claims that sulphur emissions (‘acid rain’) emitted by UK industry and especially by the Central Electricity Generating Board were adversely affecting fish in Scandinavian surface waters. Southwood became Chairman of the Management Group on the death of Sir Maurice Sugden. The papers cover the period 1983 - 1990 and include correspondence with colleagues and officials of the three academies involved, research projects, reports and position papers. Section M, Working Party on Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy. The section deals with the working party, chaired by Southwood, set up jointly by the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food (MAFF) and the Department of Health and Social Security (DHSS) later Department of Health (DOH) to report on the recently identified cattle disease commonly known as BSE. The working party made recommendations in 1988 and 1989, and reported in 1989, but the continuing incidence of the disease and the increasing public concern extend the material to 1997. This remains an to identify issues of sustainable development, evaluate progress, inform and_ provide recommendations. ongoing factor of Southwood’s activity. Section O, Glaxo-Wellcome plc, is a relatively short section. Regions, as President. The Round Table continues as an active commitment. Southwood was Co-Chairman from 1994 together with J.S. Gummer, then Prescott, Deputy Prime Minister and Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the 1994 by the Conservative Government to advise on environmental matters, and maintained after Section N, Round Table on Sustainable Development. This relates to one of several initiatives in Secretary of State for the Environment; from June 1997 he became sole Chairman, with J.M. the 1997 General Election by the incoming Labour Government. The Round Table has a wide remit, the Department of for the Chief Executive’s Awards for health, safety and environmental management and Chairman Section P, Central European University, is also a relatively short section covering Southwood’s executive director in 1992 and continues active involvement, in particular as Chairman of the panel association with this initiative by G. Soros to develop a network of advanced education in Eastern Europe with a main campus in Budapest. Southwood was appointed a non- of the Group Appeals Committee. Southwood was Head of T.R.E. Southwood NCUACS 72/1/98 Environmental Studies and Policy, in which capacity he devised courses and schedules as well as lecturing and taking part in committees and administration and the CEU Press. Section R, Correspondence, is an extensive section, including some exchanges from an early date with formative influences such as C.G. Johnson, A.M. Massee and H.K.A. Shaw. Section S, References and recommendations, is also a substantial section, with material relating to UK and overseas academic and public life. LOCATIONS OF OTHER MATERIAL Southwood’s copies of official papers, minutes etc relating to the Royal Commission on Environmental Pollution 1974-1985 were deposited at the Imperial College Centre for Environmental Technology (prior to 1981) and at the Environmental Change Unit, Oxford.

It was also the cradle of his earliest interest in the natural world, in the grounds of his home Parrock Manor, and further afield. He was lucky always to receive encouragement, from his own family, from family his membership of local natural history societies, and from encounters with practising entomologists such as C.G.

After graduating with first-class honours in 1952 he went as a research scholar funded by the Agricultural Research Council to Rothamsted Experimental Station, Hertfordshire where he undertook doctoral research under the nominal supervision of C.B. Williams, though working closely with C.G. Johnson. In 1955 he returned to Imperial College as a Research Assistant in the Department of Zoology and Applied Entomology, initially still funded by the ARC. He became successively Lecturer, Reader in Insect Ecology and Professor of Zoology and Applied Entomology and Head of the Department, as well as Warden, later Director of the Field Station at Silwood Park at Ascot, Surrey. He also served the College as Dean, Founder-Chairman of the Division of Life Sciences and as temporary Head of the Department of Biochemistry 1973-1974. Southwood left Imperial College in 1979 to take up the Linacre Chair of Zoology at Oxford, but continued to maintain academic and personal contact.

He had been invited in July 1977 to serve on the Board of Electors to the Chair, and also on that of the Hope Professor of Zoology (Entomology). By October he was already being informally sounded out about his own availability and after various exchanges of views, principally with H. Harris, he resigned as an Elector on 30 November and was invited in January 1978 to accept election to the Linacre Chair. See C.1 for the relevant correspondence and papers. The Chair carried with it Fellowship of Merton College; see C.23-C.38. In 1987 Southwood was invited to accept nomination as Vice-Chancellor. This had several unusual aspects. For one thing he was in Papua New Guinea at the time and much of the negotiation to overcome his initial reluctance was conducted at long range by fax, telephone and letter. His appointment also broke with a tradition of several centuries that the Vice-Chancellor should be a ‘Head of House’. Southwood’s years as Vice-Chancellor, 1989-1993, coincided with the major fund-raising ‘Campaign for Oxford’ which had been launched in 1988. This project, of which he became President in 1990, Professor was R.M. Anderson, appointed in 1992. His successor as Linacre inevitably some overlap in the topics and the participants involved. occupied much time and energy, necessitating many social and speaking engagements and much international travel. An attempt has been made in the items below to distinguish Vice-Cancellarian affairs and correspondence from those more specifically relating to Campaign matters, but there is On completion of his term as Vice-Chancellor Southwood continued as President of the Campaign for one year and until 1998 to act as Pro-Vice-Chancellor and take part in many University affairs. He was President of the Coimbra Group of European Universities 1992-1993. He returned to the Department of Zoology as Professor under statute and continued to give his First Year lecture course as he had done throughout his period as Vice-Chancellor.

It was originally intended that the work should include the grouse moors on Rank’s Scottish estates, and Southwood and Cross made a preliminary visit and report in 1961, but from March 1963 it was decided to discontinue the work in Scotland and to concentrate on the partridge stocks at Rank’s Hampshire estate at Sutton Scotney.

Southwood NCUACS 72/1/98 SECTION E LECTURES, SPEECHES, ADDRESSES E.1-E.161 This substantial section reflects Southwood’s career in several ways. It begins in May 1944, when he was twelve, an indication both of his precocious interest in natural history and his confidence in handling and transmitting his finds. From these early talks to school societies at Gravesend or to local natural history groups he moved on to give major lecture and practical courses for London University and the Workers’ Educational Association (WEA) while still in his early twenties. As his career developed he became in great demand as guest or invitation lecturer in the UK and internationally. The topics of the lectures also evolve, from descriptive accounts of natural history phenomena and ‘bugs’ in his home locality, through studies of habitat and population dynamics to matters of general environmental and ecological concern such as pesticide usage, radiation, biodiversity and ‘risk’. There are also less technical lectures and talks, some with a personal or historical element, intended for less specialist audiences. Some of these lectures were given to the learned or professional societies listed in section G, or at conferences listed in section H. References to these are given in the appropriate sections, where possible. Campaign, are in section C. The material is presented in chronological order. Titles or notes on the manuscripts are given in University lectures given at Imperial College are in section B.

Southwood NCUACS 72/1/98 SECTION F PUBLICATIONS AND EDITORIAL F.1-F.48 relate to Southwood’s own publications, on all topics, in the order in which they appear in his list of publications (A.2). Reference to this is made in the form Bibliog. ... The material may be relatively slight, or, in the case of his major books (Land and Water Bugs, and espcecially Ecological Methods) it may include substantial drafts and publishers’ correspondence, and letters from colleagues and readers preceding and following publication. Generally speaking, however, Southwood would not retain drafts and correspondence when a paper was finally published, and although efforts have been made to identify and include minor works, the surviving material is by no means complete. It should be noted that material relating to a publication in a specific area of interest may be found in the relevant section of the catalogue. The earliest entry in Southwood’s list of publications dates from 1947 and relates to observations made in 1946. Some of these early works and correspondence have been placed in Section A, in view of their biographical interest for his formative years. Some early observations and notes, circulated in the B.E.N.A. Mid-Kent Portfolio on various dates OWN PUBLICATIONS In order of publication F.49-F.108 1946-1957, can be found in Section E.

F.11-F.13 Life of the Wayside and Woodland (London: Warne) 1963 (Bibliog. 57). Correspondence 1959-1965 with F. Warne & Co. on publication, agreement etc. Southwood originally agreed to provide a revised edition of the book by T.A. Coward first published in 1923 and last reprinted in 1948. He found, however, that much rewriting was required to incorporate recent advances in research; furthermore, the photographs for the original publication had been destroyed by enemy action during the Second World War. As a result, the new publication was to be regarded (in the publishers’ words) ‘for all practical purposes as an entirely new book’, though it followed the original plan indicated by the sub-title ‘A seasonal guide to the natural history of the British Isles’. also prepared for Warne series but not completed.

ECOLOGY INSTITUTE 1985-1992 The Institute, located near Hamburg, was founded in 1985 by Otto Kinne. Its aims were to encourage the work of ecologists and fuller cooperation between them, by means of two annual prizes. The principal of these, the ‘Ecology Institute Prize’ carries prize money and also the requirement to write a book for publication in the series ‘Excellence in Ecology’. Southwood was invited to become a member of the Institute’s terrestial ecology staff in 1985, and was chairman of the jury for the 1987 prize.

Southwood used the Council’s Field Centre at Flatford Mill, Suffolk for his own field studies from his schooldays (earliest reference 1949, see G.41); a room there is still known as ‘The Dickery’. From 1951-1963 he ran courses there and acted as tutor and examiner for the Certificate of Proficiency in Natural History awarded by the University of London Department of Extra- Mural Studies. Most of this work was conducted at Flatford Mill but other centres, mainly Juniper Hall Dorking were also involved. The success of the course is shown not only by the results but by the letters of thanks from participants some of whom were encouraged to embark on, or pursue with more commitment, advanced work in entomology (see G.43).

Southwood NCUACS 72/1/98 SECTION K NATIONAL RADIOLOGICAL PROTECTION BOARD Southwood was appointed Chairman (part-time) of the National Radiological Protection Board (NRPB), of which he had been a member since 1980, from 1 November 1985, in succession to F.S. (Lord) Dainton. The date was chosen to enable Southwood to complete his work as Chairman of the Royal Commission on Environmental Pollution (g.v.). His appointment expired in September 1993 but was extended for a further year, to 30 September 1994. His successor was Sir Keith Peters. The Directors of the NRPB during Southwood’s Chairmanship were H.J. Dunster and R.H. Clarke. Prior to 1986 there had been a measure of antagonism to ‘Green’ organisations at the NRPB, while those organisations were suspicious of NRPB’s objectivity. See especially K.5. Southwood established an ‘Environmental Issues Panel’, to which were invited Friends of the Earth, Greenpeace International and other relevant organisations with a more professional basis (e.g. the Faculty of Occupational Health of the Royal College of Physicians, the British Ecological Society, The Institute of Biology, and the Institute of Environmental Health Officers). Initially the annual meetings were held at Imperial College as ‘neutral’ academic ground, but later were held at the Board. The ‘Green organisations’ were especially concerned about the effect of low level radiations and planned Material relating to this Hammersmith Hospital London 24-25 November 1986.
