Neville Chamberlain developed an interest in the University partially due to his father's involvement in founding the University and as the first Chancellor of the University. In addition, Neville himself was a student at Mason College [the predecessor of the University]. He was a member of the University Council and was involved in various matters at the University such as development plans at the University; a scheme for education of students nominated by trade unions; and the appointment of the new Principal to replace Sir Oliver Lodge.
