THIS UNIVERSITY TOWN HOSTED A NUMBER OF ARTISTIC AND SCIENTIFIC MINDS.
Renate
English translation:Künstler und Wissenschaftler...
Explanation:
This is a toughie --
"große künstlerische und wissenschaftliche Geister" comes to mind, as does "künstlerische und wissenschaftliche Begabungen", or a construction with "Köpfe"

Bekannte Künstler und Wissenschaftler verweilten in dieser Universitätsstadt.

...Anzahl großer künstlerischer und wissenschaftlicher Geister...

It really depends very much on the surrounding context whether or not you can use "Geister" (or maybe Geistesgrößen).
Hope this will help steer you on the right track...
