Surprising Links to the Chancellor

Hey you guys! I was interested to find an email from the University today saying that Sandi Toksvig will be the University’s new Chancellor. Although I don’t know a lot about her, I’ve seen her quite a few times on QI, and you may be familiar with her work as a comedian and writer. What most intrigued me was the following line:

“Ms Toksvig’s links to the University include the donation by her family of their father’s books to the School of Languages and Area Studies which teaches American Studies. The family also donate a Claus Toksvig prize for an American Studies Dissertation.”

Well blimey – that’s my course! Who’d of thought that there’d be a Claus Toksvig award! Maybe I should aim for it…
