'Student’s Distinction'

This brief article from a local Yorkshire newspaper reports Hoyle's success in the Cambridge Mathematical Tripos in 1936. The Mayhew Prize is awarded to the final-year mathematics student who gains top marks in the Applied Mathematics course. In 1936 Hoyle shared this prize with George Stanley Rushbrooke of St John's College, who went on to become Professor of Theoretical Physics at the University of Newcastle upon Tyne.
