Hodgkin (Supplement) NCUACS 135/8/04 GENERAL INTRODUCTION PROVENANCE The present Supplement follows the sequence and organisation of the first catalogue of Hodgkin's papers, which laid special emphasis on her scientific and public work and was completed in 1994, shortly before her death (ref: NCUACS 47/3/94). At that time, many personal and family papers remained in family hands and were transferred on a temporary basis to the Bodleian Library Oxford for the use of Georgina Ferry whose biography, Dorothy Hodgkin. A Life was published by Granta Books, London in 1998. These are the papers which are presented in this Supplement. In addition, Georgina Ferry has made available the following items: the typescript of the projected (incomplete) biography of Hodgkin by Francis Pagan (A.5); Elisabeth Crowfoot’s ‘Archaeological Biography’ of her mother (A.99); the correspondence and material relating to research on vitamin B12 which had been passed to her by K.N. Trueblood (H.27-H.33). PRESENTATION The numbered notes and references in Ferry’s text document her use of the uncatalogued as well as the catalogued papers and her private interviews and research. References to such material in the present catalogue are given in the form (Ferry p...). Although the distinction between scientific and personal papers has validity, it is far from absolute, The publication of the first catalogue in 1994 has been followed not only by Ferry’s biography but by the Memoir written by G.G. Dodson for the Royal Society (Biographical Memoirs of Fellows of the Royal Society, vol 48, 2002). The Memoir by Dodson includes a bibliography which presents Hodgkin’s writings thematically. its official standing as published by the Royal Society it supersedes the chronological Because of listing given in Volume III of the 1994 catalogue and has been used here in the form (Bibliography...). number). is true that the family and personal correspondence constitutes the main contribution of and while it the present collection, there is additional material from all aspects of Hodgkin’s life and work and considerable overlap with the 1994 catalogue. These references are given in the form (Hodgkin...item D.M.C. Hodgkin (Supplement) NCUACS 135/8/04 DESCRIPTION OF THE COLLECTION The material is presented as shown in the List of Contents. Additional explanatory notes, information and cross-references are appended where appropriate to the separate sections, sub-sections and individual entries in the body of the catalogue. The following paragraphs are intended only to draw attention to items of particular interest. Section A, Biographical and personal, is by far the most substantial, containing much new material relating to Hodgkin, her family and friends. Among the ‘Juvenilia’ at A.12-A.19 are notebooks and diaries, some home-made, recording her earliest work at home 1919-1924, including history, poems, nature study with her own illustrations, and chemistry. Her intellectual brilliance was acknowledged by her election as Fellow of the Chemical Society in 1922 at the age of twenty-one (A.33), and continued steadily with world-wide honours and awards; a celebratory volume for her 80th birthday in 1990 (A.33) testifies to the esteem and affection she inspired. The draft biography by F. Pagan, which takes the story to 1939, is also of interest (A.5). The family correspondence at A.97-A.224 documents the attainments and activities of three generations: Hodgkin’s parents John and Molly Crowfoot; herself, her sisters and her husband; and her children. Hodgkin’s mother was a gifted and energetic woman (A.99-A.118 and introductory note). Her daughter Prudence Elisabeth (‘Liz’) followed family tradition in making a career in Africa from research and she could move disconcertingly from an emotional level to practical laboratory affairs. The tradition of regular letter-writing, in a pre-electronic age, combined with open- heartedness and shared humanitarian and political concerns, links family members and also some of Hodgkin’s closest Hodgkin’s almost daily correspondence with her beloved husband Thomas, whom she met and married in 1937. This famous record of a great love as well as a personal and family account is presented with a fuller introduction at A.156-A.207). Interestingly, here as in her correspondence with her previous mentor J.D. Bernal (see Section B), part of Hodgkin’s mind remained in thrall to her which she wrote regularly (A.139-A.153 and note). By far the largest component, however, is friends such as Margery Fry (A.235, A.236), Betty Murray (A.238-A.241) and - in a somewhat different In addition to Hodgkin’s drafts for her some useful complementary material, such as Hodgkin’s undergraduate notebooks, the work for her Oxford Part II thesis later published (B.15), her Cambridge doctoral thesis (B.29) and her earliest work Section B, Research, while considerably less exhaustive than that previously catalogued, provides key - the flamboyant Somerville Fellow Enid Starkie (A.246). on insulin (B.30, B.31). Correspondence and papers relating to J.D.Bernal (B.42-B.52) are of scientific and personal interest, and this continues in Section D, Publications and lectures. D.M.C. Hodgkin (Supplement) NCUACS 135/8/04 a copy (D.9) of his dissertation ‘The analytic theory of point systems’, writings on Bernal, there is written as an undergraduate at Cambridge 1922-1923 entirely in his own time and for his own interest. It was never published but struck W.H. Bragg as so remarkable that he offered Bernal a post at the Royal Institution on the strength, it is said, of a glance at the first page. Section E, Societies and organisations, is short, but includes new material on the Children’s Medical Charity based at Westminster Hospital, and on L’Institut de la Vie. Section F, Visits and conferences, is also short. It deals with visits in Hodgkin’s later years, several of which are additional to those in the previous catalogue. Section G, Peace and humanitarian interests, contains some additional material on Birzeit University in Palestine, and also on several international conferences on peace and disarmament which Hodgkin attended in her later years. there is also the Judgment of the Nuclear Warfare Tribunal of which she was a member (G.8). H, an of presents Correspondence, Section correspondents, including Hongying Liao, M.F. Perutz, D.P. Riley, C.H. Waddington and D. Wrinch. Of special interest is the sequence of letters and data documenting the research on vitamin B12 by K.N.T. Trueblood in Los Angeles in collaboration with Hodgkin’s team at Oxford (H.27-H.33). This material, kindly passed on by G. Ferry, usefully complements the detailed entries of the previous alphabetical sequence Hodgkin’s scientific catalogue. ACKNOWLEDGMENTS Section J, Non-text material, includes some interesting photographs of a 1924 trip to Egypt and the Sudan, drawings of mosaics and tesserae relating to archaeological finds by Hodgkin’s parents, and glass plates of early research on insulin 1935-1936.

From 1946 to 1952 he was Secretary to the Oxford Delegacy for Extra-Mural Studies; visits to the Gold Coast (later Ghana) and the Sudan to initiate adult education courses led to a lifelong love for Africa and Africans. He undertook many subsequent journeys, studying the previous history of the growing regions nationalism and struggles for independence. He became the first Director of the Institute of African Studies at the University of Ghana 1961-1965, and wrote widely on African history and politics. The overwhelming majority of the material presented here Thomas was himself a prolific and lively correspondent, with a distinctive small neat handwriting, sloping upwards and always leaving a wide left-hand margin often filled with addenda.

Thomas himself was a member of the Communist Party from 1936 to 1949; Dorothy did not take this step but she was an active member of the Oxford Labour Party, attended its meetings and demonstrations, and always retained a favourable view of the Soviet Union. Dorothy aimed to send a letter each day (on more than one occasion she sent two on the same day), no matter what the hour, the conditions or the materials to hand. Many letters are dog-eared, torn and dirty; some are on headed writing paper from Somerville College, various laboratories or Crab Mill, but more are on odd scraps of paper. They are written in college, in the laboratory, on trains or in train stations, at the dentist’s, from hospital, in her garden, college committee meetings. They are almost always (Sundays are an exception) hurried or late, with Dorothy dashing out to catch the last post, missing it, and sometimes finding an unposted letter in her pocket several days later.

Every effort has been made to supply an approximate date from or domestic context, events, children’s development, or to the notes of the weather, garden or scenery which Hodgkin frequently included. Some have tentative dates added in Thomas Hodgkin’s hand. The airmail letters of the later years are more fully dated and postmarked. chronicles academic, achievements at school, are a constant theme. The content of the letters is of great interest. In the early years (1938-1944) Hodgkin was under much pressure with days full ‘jobs’ as she called them, in house, college and laboratory. Her scientific work was advancing quietly on several fronts with a growing research team and increasing respect from the wider scientific community. Her college responsibilities of committees, interviews and admissions, and the teaching of her ‘girls’ remained tasks which and sometimes in rather a rush. The births, babyhood and growth of their ailments, absences and her children, fulfilled, always great with she of not joy D.M.C.

Otherwise she maintains an unruffled youthful alertness, unfazed by unheralded (or forgotten) events. During this period, husband and wife aimed Cumbria or Staffordshire where Thomas was teaching, or in Oxford; she happy recollections, of these meetings. Though she herself had complicated arrangements to make before she could get away, her concern is always that Thomas might find the travel too exhausting. alternate weekends in expectation, longing spend writes with or to Modest Hodgkin becoming dismissals, people or in bolder candidates increased and with though it growing recognition she more or was, forthright issues, From the middle 1940s the pace of ‘my hard working and days’ gains success. confidence, giving in assessments of recommendations, for academic or other posts, more experienced in discreet ‘wire-pulling’, more prepared even to have Thomas and his visits fit into her own schedule of engagements. In the 1950s the letters are more factual on research meetings and conferences, with more technical detail than she previously gave to Thomas; this may reflect her growing fame and confidence, or perhaps his fuller comprehension of her work. Generous hospitality continued, as the family expanded to include visiting colleagues and her children’s wide circle of friends. rail notoriously Hodgkin’s chaotic. overlooked dates, absence of pens, pencils and paper or scrambles against the clock were common but accepted facts of life.
