Oxford American Institute

From January 1999 to October 2002, I was Director of the Rothermere American Institute.  Planning the program and constructing the Institute's building went on throughout 1999-2001. We had hoped that by the time the United States inaugurated President Clinton's successor, we would have opened our doors.  Bad weather and building delays meant that the official opening by ex-President Clinton took place on May 25th 2001 - in fine weather and before a large crowd; the Institute is now in full operation. There is a  web site with information on the building, the programme, and much else. The Director is now Nigel Bowles 


Alan Ryan's Own Interests

My past and future allegiances can be investigated on the Princeton homepage.

This is what the New Yorker cartoonist - Tom Bachtell - thought I looked like when I was reviewed in its pages.

My daughter Sadie also has a webpage, she's into primates and tropical biology.
