   More : In 1965, the University founded Iffley College in order to provide for members of its academic staff who held no college fellowship. In 1966, Sir Isaiah Berlin, then Fellow of All Souls and Chichele Professor of Social and Political Theory, was invited to be the College's first President. Through his efforts, generous benefactions were received from the Wolfson Foundation and the Ford Foundation, which enabled the College, now renamed as Wolfson, to make provision for graduate students also. The first of these were admitted in October 1968. The College's buildings, designed by architects Powell and Moya, were ready for occupation in 1974. The College received its Royal Charter in 1981.
