This chapter examines teaching and research in the field of non-medical sciences at Oxford during the period from 1914 to 1939. The university's contribution to the war effort through its scientists anticipated the increasing salience of Oxford science during this period. Some of the university's most notable non-medical scientists during this period include H. G. J. Moseley, J. W. Jenkinson, and G. W. Smith. This chapter provides statistics on the number of students, graduates, and faculty members in non-medical sciences.
