As a result of post-war baby boom and migration, more students were completing secondary school and entering tertiary education. In 1965, 14% of all enrolments at the University of Sydney were in medicine. For some time, this growth had been predicted and another building was designed and built. The new building, named the Bosch Building after George Henry Bosch the Faculty's greatest benefactor, was erected on a site adjoining the Blackburn Building. Two stages of the complex were completed: lecture theatres in 1965, and a principle block including a library and animal houses in 1968.
