British ethologist, writer and Oxford University graduate Richard Dawkins, watches a film as he attends the launch of the "Oxford Thinking" campaign at the British Academy in London, on May 28, 2008. Britain's Oxford University launched Wednesday what it described as its "most important" ever fundraising campaign to put it on a financial par with top US universities like Harvard and Yale. Some 20,000 people have donated a total of 575 million pounds (725 million euros, 1.1 billion dollars) to the ancient university in the last four years but officials aim to secure nearly double that in the years to come.
