Scope and content

Batchelor was instrumental in the move to establish departments within the mathematics faculty. In 1959 DAMTP was founded with him as first head of department – a role he was not to relinquish until 1983. As such he was able to shape the department, supervising its move into its first consolidated home in former premises of CUP on the Mill Lane site and introducing a fluid dynamics laboratory in the face of opposition from the Department of Physics. He continued as its head of Department until his early retirement in 1983
