Letter to the Editor

Dorothy Hodgkin

Dear Bill

I enjoyed reading the recent newsletter. John Robertson's article captured the flavour of Dorothy very well. I recall an incident in Oxford in which Dorothy had just got into her car and was sitting with the door open carrying on a conversation with John who, in order to get down to Dorothy's level, was on his knees on the sidewalk in a position that was more reminiscent of worship! Unfortunately, I had no camera handy.
