This chapter examines the developments in the teaching of zoology at Oxford University in England from 1914 to 1939. Though zoology was only considered a small subject at Oxford, it enjoyed the benefit of two chairs. These were the Linacre chair of zoology and the Hope chair of entomology. Some of the most notable zoology graduates from Oxford include Julian Huxley who was a tutorial fellow at New College, Gavin de Beer who was a prize fellow at Merton, J.Z. Young who was a fellow of Magdalen, and P.B. Medawar who was a fellow by examination in animal biology at Magdalen.
