OUTLINE OF THE CAREER OF PATRICIA HANNAH CLARKE Patricia Hannah Green was born in Pontypridd, South Wales on 29 July 1919. She attended Coedpenmaen Elementary School and in 1930 was awarded a scholarship to the County Grammar School. She did not take this up since in the same year she had been awarded a Foundation Scholarship to Howell's School Llandaff. She went up to Cambridge in 1937 to read Natural Sciences, having obtained a place at Girton College. Later she was awarded a scholarship in Chemistry. She studied Biochemistry for Part Il of the Natural Sciences Tripos but in the summer of 1940 she relinquished a research scholarship in order to take up war work. Her first post was in a branch of the Armament Research Departmentof the Ministry of Supply that had been evacuated to the University of Wales in Swansea. Later she was transferred to Woolwich Arsenal to continue her work on new explosives. In 1944 she was able to leave Woolwich and to take a post as Research Assistant to B.C.J.G. Knight at the Wellcome Research Laboratories in Beckenham, Kent. His work at that time was concerned with pathogenic anaerobic bacteria that cause severe infections of war wounds. In 1940 she married Michael Clarke. He joined the Army in 1940 and became a Tank Commander, serving in the Western Desert, India and the Middle East. When the war ended he returned to England and after being demobilised he became a documentaryfilm director. They had two sons; Francis born in 1947 and David born in 1949. Clarke continued to be involved in microbial biochemistry but decided to take a few years awayfrom full-time employment. In 1951 she joined S.T. Cowan to workpart-time at the Medical Research Council National Collection of Type Cultures based at the Central Public Health Laboratory in Colindale, London. This was a productive period during which she devised micromethods for identification of bacteria using enzyme reactions. When the MRC suggested she should workfull-time she thought that in that case she might moveon. In 1953 Clarke was appointed to an Assistant Lectureship in the Department of Biochemistry at University College London with a special responsibility for Microbial Biochemistry. She remained at University College Londonfor the rest of her career, being promoted to Lecturer in 1956, Reader in 1966 and Professor in 1974. On retirement in 1984 she was appointed Professor Emeritus of the University of London. In 1996 she was elected an Honorary Fellow of University College. She was P.H. Clarke NCUACS 120/6/03 6 also Honorary Lecturer in the Genetics Department of Monash University Australia in 1971, Honorary Professorial Fellow of the University of Wales Institute of Science and Technology 1994-1987 and Royal Society Kan Tong-Po Professorat the Chinese University of Hong Kong 1986. Clarke had many other professional commitments. She served on the Council of Society for General Microbiology 1960-1970, the Executive Committee of the Biochemical Society 1978-1981 and the Council of the Freshwater Biological Association 1980-1984. Clarke also was a memberof the Science Board of the Science Research Council (1979-1984), the Governing Body of Wye College (1980-1986), the Council of the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (1982-1984) and the Council of the University of Bath (1987-1993). Other commitments included the British National Bibliographic Research Fund 1990-200 and, locally, the Council of Cheltenham Ladies College (1984-1990) and Board of Governors of Deer Park School, Cirencester 1988-1999. In correspondence with C.M.C. Haines regarding her entry in Haines’s book /nternational Women in Science (Oxford, 2001), Clarke summarised her scientific work as follows: ‘Clarke’s main research, with her students and colleagues, was on the properties and the evolution of bacterial enzymes. By selecting mutants with the ability to grow on novel substrates they obtained strains producing altered enzymes, altered transport systems and altered regulatory systems. They werethe first to show that a single site mutation could result in altered substrate specificity. They also showed that a range of novel enzymes could evolve from successive single site mutations. She also collaborated with biochemical engineers in research on methods for producing and purifying bacterial enzymes for industrial use and becameinvolved in developments in biotechnology’. For her contributions to microbial biochemistry, Clarke was elected to the Fellowship of the Royal Society in 1976 (LeeuwenhoekLecture 1979), serving on Council and as Vice-President 1981-1982. DESCRIPTION OF THE COLLECTION The material in this collection is presented in the order given in the list of contents. It covers the period 1963 to 2002, although the bulk of the material dates from the 1980s and 1990s. Section A, Biographical, includes autobiographical material compiled and assembled in connection with her Personal Record as a Fellow of the Royal Society, a full curriculum vitae and an transcript of her video-tape interview for the Biochemical Society. There is also documentation of a number of the later honours she was accorded. Clarke’s interest in school education in general and science teaching in particular, is documented, with papers relating to Deer Park School Cirencester of which Clarke was a Governor 1988-1999. Her concern for education is also reflected in her P.H. Clarke NCUACS 120/6/03 7 correspondence with local and national politicians, although other topics are covered including tobacco advertising and the treatment of asylum seekers. Section B, Women in Science, documents both Clarke’s interest in the historical contribution of womenscientists, and her concern to ensure that more women becamescientists and that their career prospects were the same as those of their male colleagues. The material, which includes correspondence, notes, printed reports and photocopied background material, was assembled by Clarke in connection with a number of specific activities: her 1991 lecture ‘Women in Science at University College 1878-1978’; a Royal Society meeting on ‘Women in Science and Technology: opportunities for change?’, 28 May 1993; her service on the Committee on Womenin Science, Engineering and Technology established in 1993 by William Waldegrave MP, Minister for Public Service and Science, whose report ‘The Rising Tide’ was published in 1994; and a meeting on Womenin Scienceat the Royal Society, 27 March 2001. Section C, Publications and lectures, documents a few of Clarke’s publications from the 1980s on. The largest components relate to her Royal Society Biographical Memoirs of colleagues Roger Yate Stanier and Malcolm Douglas Lilly and her entry on Muriel Robertson for the New Dictionary of National Biography. There is also an incomplete set of offprints of her work. Lectures material includes documentation of her 1979 Royal Society LeeuwenhoekLecture ‘Experiments in microbial evolution: new enzymes, new metabolic activities’ and the 19th J.D. Bernal Lecture on ‘New directions in biology: basic science and biotechnology’, delivered at Birkbeck College London, 1988. Section D, Societies and organisations, is not extensive. There is material relating to eight UK and overseas organisations, including (UK) the British National Bibliographical Research Fund and the Royal Society, chiefly its Archives Working Group and Library Committee, and (overseas) the Palm Oil Research Institute of Malaysia and the Research Grants Council of Hong Kong. The material spans 1975-2001. Section E, Visits and conferences, covers some of Clarke’s travel and attendance at meetings over the period 1971-1998, although the earlier entries are later (c 1998) typescript accounts compiled by Clarke from her diary entries. Of particular significance is the documentation of her visits to the Far East through the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s, including Singapore, Malaysia (in connection with the Palm Oil Research Institute) 1990-1992, China and Hong Kong. Thereis also material relating to her involvementin two 1992 meetings marking the centenary of the birth of J.B.S. Haldane. Section F, Correspondence, is the largest in the collection. The bulk of this material was arranged by Clarke by group of correspondents and then further subdivided by individual correspondent, andit has been retained in this original order. There are groups of correspondence with her fellow researchers at University College London, with colleagues in the UK and with fellow scientists in the P.H. Clarke NCUACS120/6/03 8 USA and Europe. Few correspondents are represented by extended exchangesofletters, the exceptions being R.E. Drew and B.W. Holloway. Other correspondents include S. Brenner, H.L. Kornberg, R.D. Sager and R.Y. Stanier. Thereis also an index of correspondents. ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS Weare very grateful to Professor Clarke for making the papers available and for information and advice received. Timothy E.
