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 a Fellow of the Royal Society 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

Explanatory notes, information and cross-references are appended where appropriate to the separate sections, subsections 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) presents records of Hodgkin's career, honours and awards, 1928-90, including documentation of the award of the Nobel Prize and subsequent meetings of Nobel prizewinners. There are also family and personal correspondence, though papers relating to Hodgkin's parents and husband were retained in family hands, drafts of an unfinished autobiography, shorter autobiographical writings, articles and interviews, and many requests for biographical information for which Hodgkin often prepared careful and detailed replies.

Section B (Research) is by far the largest in the collection and comprises very extensive documentation of Hodgkin's research in x-ray crystallography including the major topics of insulin, penicillin and vitamin B12. It covers a period of sixty years from about 1928 to 1988. Most of the material was found in Hodgkin's box folders which were labelled by topic. The contents of these boxes included correspondence, drafts for reports and publications, notebooks, notes and data. Arrangement is chronological by topic. J.D. Bernal, with whom Hodgkin worked in Cambridge, 1932-4, and very many of her later collaborators including C.W. Bunn (penicillin) and E.L. Smith (vitamin B12) are represented in the papers by correspondence, drafts, notes and data.

Section C (Oxford University) provides useful documentation of Hodgkin's university teaching in the 1940s and 1950s, her research group and tenure of the Wolfson Research Professorship of the Royal Society, 1960-77, the funding and administration of her research (Rockefeller Foundation, Department of Scientific and Industrial Research, Nuffield Foundation), and the provision of equipment and supplies including the use of computer facilities at other institutions in the UK and USA and their development at Oxford.

Section D (Publications, lectures and broadcasts) presents chronological sequences of material relating to Hodgkin's scientific publications, invitations and public lectures and broadcasts, and editorial correspondence arranged alphabetically by publisher or journal title. There are substantial assemblages of material relating to her Royal Society memoirs of J.D. Bernal and Kathleen Lonsdale. Not all Hodgkin's scientific publications are documented in this section. There are drafts for many scientific papers with the related research material in Section B, and Hodgkin's Nobel Lecture is to be found in Section A with other documentation of the Nobel Prize. Drafts for a number of non-scientific publications and lectures are to be found in Section G.

Section E (Societies and organisations) brings together documentation of Hodgkin's involvement with 16 British and international societies and organisations including Bristol University, the British Association for the Advancement of Science, the Institute of Physics, especially its X-ray Analysis Group established 1943, the International Union of Crystallography (IUCr) and the Royal Society. Her major commitments to Bristol University, where she was Chancellor for nearly twenty years, and to the International Union, which she served as President and whose congresses she attended, 1948-93, are particularly well documented. In respect of Bristol there is a substantial sequence of general papers and correspondence, 1971-89, correspondence with Vice Chancellors A.W. Merrison and J.F.C. Kingman, Hodgkin's speeches at degree congregations, and material relating to the Department of Architecture closed by the University in 1984 despite Hodgkin's support for its efforts to remain open. Although there is some record of all the IUCr congresses Hodgkin attended from 1948, the bulk of the surviving material dates from Hodgkin's term as President, 1972-5, and includes general papers and correspondence and executive committee papers. The IUCr material reflects Hodgkin's interest in bringing Chinese scientists into the international crystallographic community. There is also material relating to scientific relations with China amongst the Royal Society papers.

Section F (Visits and conferences) presents a chronological sequence of material relating to Hodgkin's scientific visits and conferences, 1936-93, though the great bulk of the material is from the period after the award of the Nobel Prize in 1964. There is evidence of her interest in maintaining scientific contacts with the USSR and China during the Cold War, the first of many visits taking place in 1953 and 1959 respectively, and of visa difficulties in respect of visiting the USA during the same period. She also made frequent visits to Eastern Europe outside the USSR. India was another locus of valued scientific contacts and she made a number of extended visits, for example in 1974, 1978 and 1979. Not all Hodgkin's extensive travel is documented in this section. Records of her attendance at International Union of Crystallography congresses are to be found in Section E with other IUCr material. Visits which bear on Hodgkin's peace and humanitarian interests including Pugwash meetings and her visits to Vietnam are to be found in Section G. Some visits of particular biographical significance (including the award of the Nobel Prize and subsequent Nobel meetings) are to be found in Section A.

Section G (Peace and humanitarian interests) brings together documentation of the wide range of peace and humanitarian causes with which Hodgkin was involved. Her major commitments to the Medical Aid Committee for Vietnam and the Pugwash movement are particularly well documented. The activities of the Medical Aid Committee are recorded in general correspondence and papers, minutes and agenda and printed material; however the surviving material relating to Hodgkin's visits to Vietnam in 1971 and 1974 is disappointing in extent. The bulk of the Pugwash material dates from Hodgkin's Presidency, 1976-88, and includes general correspondence and papers, committee papers, conference, symposia and workshop papers, Hodgkin's addresses, and printed material. Of especial interest is the documentation of the Warsaw conference of 1982, which followed the imposition of martial law in Poland. Other organisations and topics represented in the section include the J.D. Bernal Peace Library, Palestine, Russian dissidents and Scientists Against Nuclear Arms (SANA). The section also presents documentation of conferences attended by Hodgkin on peace and humanitarian issues, a number of her lectures and publications on these topics, and an extended chronological sequence of shorter correspondence with individuals and organisations, 1952-91.

Section H (Correspondence) presents an alphabetical sequence of Hodgkin's scientific correspondents including distinguished mentors and contemporaries such as J.D. Bernal, W.L.Bragg, J.W. Perutz, P.P. Ewald, I. Fankuchen, H.Lipson, Kathleen Lonsdale, A.L.Patterson, Linus Pauling, M.F. Perutz, Robert Robinson, R.L.M. Synge and Dorothy Wrinch, and very many of the younger scientists from Britain and overseas who researched in various capacities in her laboratory such as G.G. Dodson, J.D. Dunitz and David Sayre. The sequence is noteworthy for the significant number of women scientists who trained in Hodgkin's laboratory including J. Glusker (née Pickworth) and B.W. Low. There is also an extended sequence of shorter scientific correspondence arranged chronologically, 1933-91. Hodgkin kept together by topic much of the scientific correspondence relating to her principal research projects and this correspondence is to be found in Section B (Research).

Section J (Non-print material) comprises photographs, photographic slides, sound recordings and film. There are photographs of Hodgkin, mostly undated, and with scientific colleagues including J.D. Bernal and I. Fankuchen, H.M. Powell and colleagues from the Oxford laboratory, P.L. Kapitza and F.H.C. Crick, a photograph album recording Pugwash occasions, 1969-88, photographic slides for Hodgkin's lectures especially on insulin and vitamin B12 work and three sound recordings including the 1973 Nobel Guest Lecture and her Chancellor's Address to the Bristol University Education Department in 1974.

Custodial History

The completion of this catalogue of the manuscript papers of Professor Dorothy Hodgkin OM is a significant event in the work of the National Cataloguing Unit for the Archives of Contemporary Scientists. Like all such large-scale cataloguing projects it has had a long gestation. Professor Hodgkin approached the NCUACS's Oxford-based predecessor organisation in 1981 for advice about her papers and visited its offices in 1983. Contacts were maintained after the scientific archives project was transferred to Bath in 1987 and in 1991 Professor Hodgkin gave permission for the NCUACS to catalogue her papers for deposit in the Bodleian Library, Oxford. The Unit's archivists made a number of visits to the Chemical Crystallography Laboratory, Oxford and Professor Hodgkin's home to survey the very substantial accumulations of papers in both locations. A detailed archival assessment of their quantity, nature and importance for a wide range of aspects of the history of science was prepared, and a funding proposal for submission to the Leverhulme Trust was developed. We were very fortunate to secure funding from the Trust for two years and Mr Paul Newman was appointed in 1992 to catalogue the papers. Professor Hodgkin has been supportive throughout with advice and encouragement and Mr Newman has met the challenge of his first encounter with scientific archives with great success.

Acquisition

The material was received as a donation at various dates between October 1991 and February 1994 from Professor Hodgkin and from the Chemical Crystallography Laboratory at Oxford University.

Restrictions on Access

A number of individual files are restricted. These are noted in the catalogue.

Separated Material

Additional papers of Dorothy Mary Crowfoot Hodgkin, 1919-2003, are held at the Bodleian Library, http://www.bodley.ox.ac.uk/dept/scwmss/wmss/online/modern/hodgkin/hodgkin-adds.html.

Related Material

Papers of Hodgkin's parents John Winter and Grace Mary Crowfoot are retained in family hands.

Papers of Hodgkin's husband Thomas Lionel Hodgkin are in the Rhodes House Library, Oxford and in family hands.

Papers of Thomas Hodgkin (1798-1866) are in the Library of the Wellcome Institute for the History of Medicine, London.

A photograph album recording Hodgkin's eightieth birthday celebrations is retained in family hands.

Videotape interviews of Hodgkin are held in the Archives of the Biochemical Society and the Library of the Royal College of Physicians, London.

Two models showing the crystal structure of vitamin B12 and two models made by Hodgkin to show the structure of pig insulin at a resolution of 2.8 Angstroms are held by the Science Museum, London.

Drawings of Hodgkin's hands by Henry Moore and a portrait of her by Bryan Organ are held by the Royal Society, London.

A portrait by Maggi Hambling was commissioned for the National Portrait Gallery, London.


Note:

THE ASSEMBLING OF THE MATERIAL, AND THE COMPILATION AND PRODUCTION OF THIS CATALOGUE, HAVE BEEN MADE POSSIBLE BY A GENEROUS SUBVENTION FROM THE LEVERHULME TRUST

The NCUACS would like to take this opportunity to record our gratitude to the Director of the Leverhulme Trust, Sir Rex Richards, and the Leverhulme Trustees for their support of the scientific archives work since the transfer of operations to Bath in 1987. This has taken the form of three major cataloguing projects: the papers of Sir John Kendrew (1987-1989), Sir David Phillips (1991-1994) and Professor Dorothy Hodgkin OM (1992-1994). The three collections are deposited in the Bodleian Library, Oxford where they form an indispensable corpus of material for the history of twentieth-century British science.

ACKNOWLEGEMENTS

We owe a first duty of thanks to Professor Hodgkin for making her papers available for cataloguing and for information and advice particularly about family and biographical matters.

We also owe a great debt of gratitude to Professor Judith Howard whose advice on the very extensive research materials was indispensable to the successful cataloguing of them.

Timothy E. Powell of the NCUACS at Bath has helped at all stages of the project with advice and information.

Hazel Gott has earned much gratitude for the patience and skill she had brought in the processing and revising of the catalogue.

B   RESEARCH


Scope and Content:

This section comprises very extensive documentation of Hodgkin's research in x-ray crystallography including the major topics of insulin, penicillin and vitamin B12. It covers a period of sixty years from about 1928 to 1988.

J.D. Bernal, with whom Hodgkin worked in Cambridge, 1932-4, and very many of her later collaborators including C.W. Bunn (penicillin) and E.L. Smith (vitamin B12) are represented in the papers by correspondence, drafts, notes and data.

Administrative History:

Most of the material was found in Hodgkin's box folders which were labelled by topic. The contents of these boxes included correspondence, drafts for reports and publications, notebooks, notes and data.

Arrangement:

The material has been arranged in chronological order by topic. At the end of the chronological sequence of topics there is some miscellaneous material followed by large format items.

B.7   Insulin, 1935-88


Scope and Content:

Hodgkin's research on this topic began in 1935 when she took the first x-ray photographs of rhombohedral crystals of insulin, given to her by Robert Robinson, Waynflete Professor of Chemistry at Oxford. The structure of insulin proved to be much more complicated than was first imagined and, with a molecular weight of 5780, the measurements and calculations needed to show the arrangement of the atoms present were lengthy and difficult. Thus it was not until 1969 that Hodgkin and her team were able to reveal the three-dimensional structure of rhombohedral 2 zinc insulin. Hodgkin's research on insulin refinements continued into the 1980s.

For overviews of Hodgkin's insulin research, see for example MS. Eng. c. 5644/17 and MS. Eng. c. 5671/23 below.

The material, which is substantial, covers the period 1935-88, although the bulk dates from the 1950s onwards. There is an extensive correspondence with colleagues and others including letters of congratulation 1969 arising from the announcement of the three-dimensional structure, drafts for reports and publications, notebooks, notes and data.

The first x-ray crystallographic study of calciferol (vitamin D2) was undertaken in 1932 by J.D. Bernal. In 1948 Hodgkin and J.D. Dunitz resolved the conflict between the early crystallographic and chemical evidence on the structure of calciferol by the complete x-ray analysis of a calciferol derivative (Bibliog. 44), but such was the complicated atomic arrangement in crystals of calciferol itself that it was not until 1976 that x-ray methods had advanced far enough for the arrangement to be established.

B.14   Penicillin, 1942-89


Scope and Content:

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. Since the research had been carried out under conditions of wartime secrecy, it was not until 1949 that Hodgkin and her collaborators' work was finally published in The Chemistry of Penicillin (Bibliog. 46). Research on penicillin refinements continued after the war.

Professor Hodgkin explained the scientific importance of the penicillin analysis in a letter to the compilers of this catalogue (July 1991): 'The usual way of establishing the structure of an organic natural product was by synthesis following experiments in degradation which suggested different possible structures. This proved impossible in the case of penicillin because the structure is unstable in the presence of the reagents needed to make B lactams. Much later routes to produce stable B lactams were discovered and put to the synthesis of penicillin. Other physical methods and particularly spectroscopic methods were inconclusive which left x-ray methods as the best evidence of the x-ray evidence at first; now it is commonly used first to find organic structures.'

The documentation of the penicillin research is of particular interest because of the importance of the molecule to medical science and the demonstration of the power of x-ray techniques in the solution of its structure by Hodgkin and her co-workers. Furthermore the enormous technical developments after the Second World War - especially the use of the electronic computer to process data - meant that the variety of methods pioneered in the analysis of penicillin were not in fact used again.

The material, which is substantial, covers the period 1942-89, although the bulk dates from the last years of the Second World War and the period immediately afterwards. There is an extensive correspondence with colleagues, drafts for reports and publications, reports of work of colleagues in other laboratories sent to Hodgkin for information or circulated officially, notebooks, data, and illustrative material probably prepared for a penicillin display at the Science Museum, London as part of an exhibition to mark the postwar International Congress of Pure and Applied Chemistry.

B.18   Vitamin B12, 1948-84


Scope and Content:

Hodgkin's research on this topic began in 1948 when E.L. Smith of Glaxo Laboratories gave her red crystals of a newly isolated anti-pernicious anaemia factor, named vitamin B12. Hodgkin and a varying group of young crystallographers carried out their analysis by the parallel investigations of four different crystal structures, dry B12, wet B12, the selenocyanide derivative of B12 (Se CN), and a hexacarboxylic acid or the 'red fragment' of B12. The crystal structures of the four B12 derivatives were then the most complicated ones which had been solved in any detail by x-ray analysis.

See MS. Eng. c. 5581/3 for a record of the progress of the vitamin B12 research in Hodgkin's laboratory, July 1954-June 1955. See MS. Eng. c. 5608/23 for a later overview by Hodgkin of the vitamin B12 research.

In the course of the research Hodgkin's group collaborated closely with Smith at Glaxo, J.G. White at Princeton, and A.R. Todd at Cambridge; it was Todd who announced the solution of the structure of vitamin B12 in 1955. In view of the size of the molecule and the extensive calculations involved, the use of early electronic computers at the University of California, Los Angels (K.N. Trueblood), Manchester University and the National Physical Laboratory, Teddington proved extremely important.

Hodgkin's research on vitamin B12 continued into the 1980s with work on the dimethy-benzimidazole-cobamide (DMBC) coenzyme, factor V1a, neovitamin B12, and monocarboxylic acid.

The material, which is substantial, covers the period, 1948-84, although the bulk dates from 1950s and the early 1960s. There is an extensive correspondence including Smith, White, Todd and Trueblood, drafts for reports and publications, notebooks, a large number of research folders, and data.
