Biographical History

Dorothy Mary Crowfoot was born in Cairo in 1910 and brought up in East Anglia. She was educated at the Sir John Leman School, Beccles, and Somerville College, Oxford, where she read chemistry 1928-32. Apart from two years research at Cambridge University after graduation she remained in Oxford for the rest of her career. Here for twenty-five years she combined teaching chemistry at Somerville, where her students included the future Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, with research at the highest level. She became University lecturer and demonstrator in 1946 and University Reader in X-ray crystallography in 1956. From 1960 to official retirement in 1977 she was Wolfson Research Professor of the Royal Society. She also married and raised a family. In 1937 she married Thomas Lionel Hodgkin (died 1982); they had three children Luke Howard born 1938, Prudence Elizabeth born 1943 and John Robin Tobias born 1946.

Dorothy Hodgkin carried out her first research at Oxford in 1931-2 with H.M. Powell on the structure of thallium diakyl halides. She then went to Cambridge to work for two years with J.D. Bernal who had just been appointed to start research on the study of crystals by x-ray diffraction and had begun to look at biologically interesting molecules. The international success of his investigations led to increasing demands on his research, and Hodgkin joined him to make the first measurements on materials sent for analysis. The research included work on sterols, vitamin B1 and the protein pepsin, and Hodgkin wrote her thesis for the Ph.D. degree at Cambridge on the results of the research on sterols. On her return to Oxford she decided to concentrate on one crystal structure in detail and (with C.H. Carlisle) correctly analysed cholesterol iodide, the first complex organic molecule to be determined completely by x-ray crystallography. Early in the Second World War the successful tests with penicillin extracts on infected mice by Howard Florey and his team in Oxford led to urgent attempts to determine its chemical structure. Hodgkin and her co-workers accomplished this in three years with x-ray techniques, showing conclusively that the formula of penicillin included [beta] lactam and thiazolidine rings. This x-ray determination was of national importance at the time, and was to have a lasting effect on the development of antibiotics, since in order to make synthetic drugs it is necessary to know the structure of the original material. She later elucidated the structure of cephalosporin C, an antibiotic closely related to penicillin.

After 1948 Hodgkin began work on the x-ray analysis of vitamin B12 which is essential to the life of red blood cells in the body - the inability to absorb sufficient vitamin B12 from the diet leads to pernicious anaemia. The red crystals of the anti pernicious anaemia factor were supplied by E.L. Smith of Glaxo Laboratories and after a lengthy step-by-step analysis lasting nearly ten years she and her team found the structure. The processing of data was aided by three of the first electronic computers located at Manchester University, the National Physical Laboratory, Teddington and the University of California, Los Angeles, and Hodgkin played a leading part in the campaign to provide computer facilities at Oxford University. After the success of the vitamin B12 work Hodgkin and her team refocused their research effort on the crystal structure of insulin-she had taken the first x-ray photographs of insulin crystals in 1935 - and were able to announce the three-dimensional structure of rhombohedral 2 Zn insulin in 1969. Research on insulin refinements continued into the 1980s.

Apart from her scientific research career at Oxford University, Hodgkin undertook a number of prominent public and professional responsibilities including in the UK, Chancellor of Bristol University, 1970-88, and President of the British Association for the Advancement of Science, 1977-78, and internationally, President of the International Union of Crystallography, 1972-75. Hodgkin's involvement in humanitarian and peace issues was given impetus by the Vietnam War. She became Vice-President of the Medical Aid Committee for Vietnam in 1965 and President in 1971. As President she visited North Vietnam in 1971 and 1974. Her second major commitment in the area of peace and international understanding was to the Pugwash movement (Pugwash Conferences on Science and World Affairs), which she served as President, 1976-88.

Hodgkin was elected FRS in 1947 (Royal Medal 1956, Copley Medal 1976; Tercentenary Lecture 1960, Bakerian Lecture 1972), and was awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1964 for her determinations by x-ray techniques of the structures of important biochemical substances. In 1965 she became only the second woman to be appointed to the Order of Merit.

Scope and Content

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 MS. Eng. c. 7923/1-8 are notebooks and diaries, some home-made, recording her earliest work at home 1919-24, 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 (MS. Eng. c. 7924/11), and continued steadily with world-wide honours and awards; a celebratory volume for her 80th birthday in 1990 (MS. Eng. c. 7926/1) testifies to the esteem and affection she inspired. The draft biography by F. Pagan, which takes the story to 1939, is also of interest (MS. Eng. c. 7922/5). The family correspondence at MSS. Eng. c. 7929/4-5, 7930-7 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 (MS. Eng. c. 7930 and introductory note). Her daughter Prudence Elisabeth ('Liz') followed family tradition in making a career in Africa from which she wrote regularly (MS. Eng. c. 7932/1-15 and note). By far the largest component, however, is 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 MSS. Eng. c. 7933-7936/13. 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 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 friends such as Margery Fry, Betty Murray and - in a somewhat different key - the flamboyant Somerville Fellow, Enid Starkie.

Section B, Research, while considerably less exhaustive than that previously catalogued, provides some useful complementary material, such as Hodgkin's undergraduate notebooks, the work for her Oxford Part II thesis later published (MS. Eng. c. 7941/4), her Cambridge doctoral thesis (MS. Eng. c. 7942/4) and her earliest work on insulin (MS. Eng. c. 7942/5-6).

Correspondence and papers relating to J.D.Bernal (MS. Eng. c. 7943/7-17) are of scientific and personal interest, and this continues in Section D, Publications and lectures. In addition to Hodgkin's drafts for her writings on Bernal, there is a copy (MS. Eng. c. 7945/5) of his dissertation 'The analytic theory of point systems', written as an undergraduate at Cambridge 1922-3 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'lnstitut 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 (MS. Eng. c. 7951/8).

Section H, Correspondence, presents an alphabetical sequence of Hodgkin's scientific 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 (MS. Eng. c. 7957/1-7). This material, kindly passed on by G. Ferry, usefully complements the detailed entries of the previous catalogue.

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 1935-6.

Bibliographical References

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, 48 (2002), 179-219). 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...). The Memoir by Dodson includes a bibliography which presents Hodgkin's writings thematically. Because of its official standing as published by the Royal Society it supersedes the chronological listing given in Volume III of the 1994 catalogue and has been used here in the form (Bibliography...). Although the distinction between scientific and personal papers has validity, it is far from absolute, and while it is true that the family and personal correspondence constitutes the main contribution of the present collection, there is additional material from all aspects of Hodgkin's life and work and considerable overlap with the 1994 catalogue. References to the 1994 catalogue, use the full reference number (NCUACS 47/3/94...item number).

Arrangement

The additional papers were catalogued by the National Cataloguing Unit for the Archives of Contemporary Scientists, who also compiled the first catalogue of Hodgkin's papers. Their reference numbers have been retained as 'Former reference numbers' but Bodleian shelfmarks have been added as the main reference number and these should be used when ordering files and quoting from them. 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).

Custodial History

After her death, 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 (MS. Eng. c. 7922/5); Elisabeth Crowfoot's 'Archaeological Biography' of her mother (MS. Eng. c. 7930/1); the correspondence and material relating to research on vitamin B12 which had been passed to her by K.N. Trueblood (MS. Eng. c. 7957/1-7).

A.2.3   Somerville College, Oxford, 1928-92


Scope and Content:

Hodgkin went up to Somerville in October 1928, with an allowance from her aunt Dolly of £200 a year. She read for the B.A. Honours Degree in Chemistry and was able to specialise in X-ray crystallography for her 'Part II' thesis under the supervision of H.M. Powell. After an important period in Cambridge 1932-4 with J.D. Bernal, she accepted the offer of a Fellowship at Somerville and remained at Oxford until retirement. Before taking up residence at Oxford in 1928, however, Hodgkin had spent the summer months with her parents on an archaeological expedition at Jerash in Jordan. She undertook the task of recording the mosaic designs of the excavated church pavements, which she completed, along with tesserae from later excavations (Ferry pp.36-40, 52-4) during her undergraduate days. This contribution to archaeological research at an early age is recorded at MS. Eng. c. 7924/3 below. See also MS. Photogr. d. 179/16-17 below.

Later she lived at Geldeston with her parents, and after their death at Riverview (in Geldeston).

A.4.2   Grace Mary 'Molly' Crowfoot, c.1923-83


Scope and Content:

Hodgkin's mother, née Hood, was a remarkable woman. Born into a comfortable country family in 1877, she received no formal education. By her own talent and determination, however, her family connections and especially her marriage in 1909 to John Crowfoot and consequent residence in Cairo, the Sudan and the Middle East, she made herself an authority on flowering plants, weaving and dyeing techniques, pottery and glass-making. She published extensively on these topics. Her letters are exceptionally difficult to date, since she and her husband spent several months each year on archaeological digs (where one or more of their daughters might join them), returning to their Geldeston home between expeditions. The expeditions - to Nablus, Jerash and Samaria - the finds and the camp life are described in lively terms, and often result in requests to Hodgkin for help in identifying mosaics, crystals, plants and herbs. During her parents' frequent absences, Hodgkin was responsible for her younger sisters and for domestic arrangements. Several of her parents' letters refer to modest sums sent for Christmas and birthday presents and for household bills.

Scope and Content:

Dorothy and Thomas's second child was born on 23 Sept. 1941. Like both her parents, she was a lively and frequent letter-writer and like them, rarely dated letters fully. She shared their political and humanitarian interests, teaching in Zambia, the Sudan and, until the fall of Saigon, in Hanoi. In 1989 she joined Amnesty International. She witnessed several overseas political upheavals and took a keen interest in left-wing developments. Her correspondence is thus of historical and anthropological as well as personal interest, though many of the letters, with few dates and faint or indecipherable date stamps, are of uncertain order. See also MS. Eng. c. 5580/4 in the main Hodgkin papers.

A.4.11   Thomas Lionel Hodgkin, 1928-83


Scope and Content:

Dorothy Hodgkin's husband, whom she met at the home of Margery Fry while working at the Royal Institution, Easter 1937, and married in December of the same year.

Thomas Hodgkin (1910-1982) served in the Colonial Office in Palestine 1933-6; he worked as a Staff Tutor for the Workers Educational Association 1939-45. 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 regions and identifying himself with their growing nationalism and struggles for independence. He became the first Director of the Institute of African Studies at the University of Ghana 1961-5, and wrote widely on African history and politics.

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. Few of his letters survive in this collection; they are presented at MS. Eng. c. 7933/1-4 below. Letters which were incorporated in other items are noted in the Index. Two collections of his letters have been published: Thomas Hodgkin: Letters from Palestine 1932-1936, ed. E.C. Hodgkin (London 1986), and Thomas Hodgkin: Letters from Africa 1947-56, ed. Elizabeth Hodgkin and Michael Wolfers (London 2000).

The overwhelming majority of the material presented here is Dorothy's correspondence with her husband, from their engagement in 1937 to 1977. The correspondence continues steadily through his wartime absences in the north of England as a W.E.A. tutor and his later extended travels and residence in Africa, with varying gaps during his presence with the family in Oxford.

It forms a rich source of information about Hodgkin herself, her research and career, and also into the social and political activities of a liberal-socialist, well-connected, middle class family of the time. 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, the University Parks, or during 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.

Tantalisingly, and especially during the early years of her marriage, very few are fully dated, some not at all. Every effort has been made to supply an approximate date from context, reference to academic, career or domestic events, to the early chronicles of the 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.

The content of the letters is of great interest. In the early years (1938-44) Hodgkin was under much pressure with days full of '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 she fulfilled, not always with great joy and sometimes in rather a rush. The births, babyhood and growth of her children, their ailments, absences and achievements at school, are a constant theme.

Added to these was the family tradition of casual entertaining. Colleagues from the laboratory like Carlisle or Riley, others from outside Oxford such as Bernal, Perutz or Waddington, Labour Party associates, Somerville friends and wartime evacuees often arrived unannounced. Much hospitality was given and received. There were always maids and a cook to assist, but surprisingly little mention is made of wartime rationing and shortages.

Despite her fatigue - Hodgkin often writes of going to bed, or dropping off to sleep, at 9.30 - political or scientific discussions with friends would continue till 1.00 or 2.00 am, after which she might fit in reading for the next day. Only once does she seem to buckle, writing in a letter dated 'Monday' (MS. Eng. c. 7933/12, probably 1940) 'Sometimes I feel depressed and wonder whether it's worth the struggle to keep this place and work going'. Otherwise she maintains an unruffled youthful alertness, unfazed by unheralded (or forgotten) events. During this period, husband and wife aimed to spend alternate weekends in Cumbria or Staffordshire where Thomas was teaching, or in Oxford; she writes with longing expectation, or 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.

From the mid-1940s the pace of 'my hard working days' increased and with it growing recognition and success. Modest though she was, Hodgkin gains confidence, becoming more forthright in giving assessments of people or issues, bolder in recommendations, or dismissals, of candidates 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. Hodgkin enjoyed the 'nice companionship' of 'a lovely houseful', or '23 people to tea, of very mixed kinds, mostly unexpected'.

Hodgkin's day-to-day organisation was notoriously chaotic. Missed posts, lost trains, overlooked dates, absence of pens, pencils and paper or scrambles against the clock were common but accepted facts of life. On one occasion, after a visit to Cambridge for meetings with Perutz and Lawrence Bragg, she missed her rail connection from London to Oxford and spent a 'horribly cold' night on Paddington Station, catching the dawn train and arriving home in Oxford at 7.30 to find Luke 'somewhat weepy' (undated letter at MS. Eng. c. 7933/12, probably 1940). The last letter in the sequence (MS. Eng. c. 7936/10), from 'Seattle and San Francisco' dated 20 Feb. 1977, includes the information that she has inadvertently brought the car keys with her, has no address or telephone number for her daughter Liz and no envelope for her non-airmail letter (written on Crab Mill paper). Yet here as always the tone is of tender unquestioning devotion.

The correspondence has been drawn upon extensively by Ferry in her biography. Cross-references to her text and notes are given as far as possible.

A little material following Thomas's death in 1982 is at MS. Eng. c. 7936/11-13 below.

Hodgkin left Cambridge and returned to Oxford in 1934, and Bernal moved to Birkbeck College London in 1937. Their relations remained extemely close, on a personal and political level, as well as their mentor-pupil affinity which persisted. See Hodgkin and Ferry passim. See also MSS. Eng. c. 7945-7 below, Hodgkin's publications about Bernal, which include some further orignal material assembled by her at the time of writing.


Letters and cards to Bernal
Date: 1932-40
Shelfmark: MS. Eng. c. 7943/7-10
Former ref: NCUACS 135/8/04 B.42-5

Scope and Content:

These are all autograph manuscript, rarely fully dated. They are presented in approximately chronological order, with dates assigned on the basis of content or reference. All aspects of Hodgkin's life and contact with Bernal are dealt with, beginning with her first visit to his laboratory (Aug. 1932) and the Ravenna conference (Sept. 1932). After her return to Oxford there are many references to her visit to consult him in Cambridge or arrangements for left-wing political meetings, juxtaposed, sometimes incongruously, with research information and ideas which occupied part of her mind in whatever emotional circumstances. G. Ferry draws on these letters extensively in her biography of Hodgkin, particularly chapters 3-5. Several of Hodgkin's letters to Thomas include references to Bernal's visits to Oxford on scientific or political matters. Files comprise:

  • 7) letters and cards, 1932-6, includes undated letter, 'I am so glad and excited about the virus' (B.42)
  • 8) letters and cards, 1937. These cover the period of Hodgkin's engagement and marriage to Thomas, and show her delicacy in dealing with these topics with regard to Bernal. The letters have been extensively quoted by Ferry. Hodgkin's letter of 12 October is characteristic, moving from Oxford Labour Club lunches to her insulin paper, her plans for marriage in December and subsequent semi-detached life with Thomas, and changes in her relations with Bernal which had clearly been of great moment to her. Letter of 19 Dec., written on honeymoon, describes her wedding and also pending work on lactoglobulin which she has delegated to Riley and Fankuchen. (B.43)
  • 9) letters and cards, 1938, relating to science, politics, and pregnancy. Includes telegram 'Nice boy born 5pm yesterday...' and Hodgkin's letter of 28 Dec. describing her labour, early days with the baby, 'rather a nice one', and detailed comments on her sterols paper. (B.44)
  • 10) letters and cards, 1939-40, includes undated letter (Spring 1940, Ferry pp.218-19) on Hodgkin's ideas about the development of crystallography in Oxford, and her own uncertain plans. (B.45)

Some attempts to date them have been made including some, in blue biro, by Hodgkin herself. Tentative dates run 1934-9. The material is mainly concerned with research and publications and includes some detailed results, diagrams, Fourier maps etc.

D.2   Publications and materials relating to J.D. Bernal, 1935, 1967-88


Scope and Content:

Immediately after graduation from Oxford in 1932, Hodgkin went to work in Bernal's laboratory in the Department of Mineralogy at Cambridge, where she remained until 1934. Bernal became and remained an important influence in her life - perhaps second only to Thomas. His fertile scientific mind suggested and encouraged ideas for research; his strongly leftwing political views chimed with hers, though she did not quite follow him (or, later, Thomas) into the Communist Party; their intimate personal relations changed after her marriage but they remained on terms of deep affection and respect. Hodgkin's long acquaintance with Bernal often led to requests for information or contributions to publications. After his death in 1971 she undertook two major commissions: the Biographical Memoir for the Royal Society, published in 1980, and a lecture 'Microcosm: the world as seen by John Desmond Bernal' delivered in Dublin, Oct. 1980 and published in Proceedings of the Royal Irish Academy, 1981.

In the course of her writing, Hodgkin accumulated considerable information, correspondence etc., which is at MS. Eng. c. 7947 below. After the appearance of the Royal Society Memoir, she was contacted by Professor Alan Mackay who had traced and arranged publication of Bernal's early (1923) paper 'The analytical theory of point systems'. Hodgkin had referred to this paper, then apparently lost, in her Memoir (pp.24-26). A copy of the recovered work is at MS. Eng. c. 7945/5 below. Bernal's manuscript draft of his autobiographical 'Microcosm', with a few annotations by him, and by Hodgkin, is at MS. Eng. c. 7946/2-7 below. A little correspondence is at MS. Eng. c. 7946/11-12 below.

The Children's Medical Charity was set up in 1982 in the Department of Experimental Chemical Pathology in the Vincent Square Laboratories of Westminster Hospital. Funding cuts were a persistent problem, most of the material being concerned with various attempts to raise funds and place the research and diagnostic work of the charity on a firm basis. Diabetes, vitamin B12 metabolism and protein absoprtion were among the research interests of the charity. In 1986 it was floated as an Investment Trust, launched in July 1986. In 1988, further Government decisions proposed the closure of Westminster Hospital and Westminster Children's Hospital and their replacement by a single hospital in Fulham Road. Hodgkin agreed to become a Scientific Adviser to the charity in 1983. She took part in conferences and Open Days. In 1988, under the threat of closure, she agreed to become a Patron of the Westminster Hospitals Development Fund.
