Aware of the contemporary fear of an emerging schism between the arts and sciences, Sir Edward Appleton (Nobel Prize winner for Physics and the Principal from 1948 to 1965) decreed that science undergraduates should spend their first year in the city-centre campus, and be encouraged to take courses in the humanities, as well as participate in student societies and extra-mural activities, so that undergraduates, and indeed staff, from different faculties would mingle. Appropriately, following Appleton’s death in 1965, his “Fundamental Science Building”, designed by Alan Reiach, was named after the "Appleton Tower".
