This chapter opens with a summary of the state of Oxford mathematics at the beginning of the 20th century, with Professors Esson, Elliot, and Love occupying the mathematical Chairs. A wind of change blew across the University with the appointment of the Cambridge mathematician G. H. Hardy, who held the Savilian Chair of Geometry for eleven years. The chapter concludes with a description of the major rise in mathematical activity following the Second World War.
