Ryle plainly wanted his radio surveys to have a decisive impact on cosmology, which they could only do by refuting the 'steady state'. He had invested years of effort in designing and building new instruments, as well as in the data-gathering itself. No single individual nowadays can master all the necessary techniques; Ryle was an exceptional exemplar of the pioneering radio astronomers who conceived and built novel equipment, and themselves drew fundamental inferences from the data. Despite Ryle's compelling arguments in 1958 (or so they seem in retrospect), controversy took several more years to die down.
When the Botanic Garden moved between 1848 and 1852 to its new site on Trumpington Road, lecture-rooms and museums replaced the conservatories and flower beds, and the New Museums Site was born. Eventually, at the beginning of this century, the Rotunda was pulled down, a big anatomical museum 3° Medical science was put in its place, and all the structures now down the side of Pembroke Street comprised the medical school (now the Department of Zoology). Land on the opposite side of Pembroke Street was purchased by the University from Downing College, resulting in a gradual colonisation of this new Downing Site by the scientific departments over the first three decades of this century.
Caius was a great Greek scholar, and he was one of the first people in this country to make accurate and insightful translations of some of the great Greek classics in Latin, which was of course the universal learned language of his day. Besides the fecundity of his classical scholarship, Caius pioneered a new way of disseminating medical knowledge as widely as possible. He also wrote a medical book in English, an undertaking virtually unprecedented for a doctor of his background. Most learned works were written in Latin, but Caius wrote a book in the vernacular for his less-well-educated countrymen who were not fortunate enough to have more than a rudimentary smattering of Latin.
