In Memory of Sir John Bradfield

With great sadness, Trinity College Cambridge has announced the death of Sir John Bradfield. He died at Great Gate yesterday evening, 13 October, on the way to a dinner.


Born in 1925, he was Senior Bursar from 1956 to 1992. During that time he led the College in establishing Trinity’s Science Park and in developing Felixstowe into Britain’s largest international port. He was instrumental in the foundation of Darwin College, where he was an Honorary Fellow. Many of the things that we now take for granted in Cambridge can be traced back to his inspiration.

He remained active in college until his death. He leaves a widow and their son Bob.
