Description
A protégé of Bertrand Russell and the first woman to receive a doctor of science degree from Oxford University, Dorothy Wrinch (1894–1976) made major contributions to mathematical physics, philosophy, probability theory, genetics, protein structure, and crystallography. But Wrinch—a strong-willed and ultimately tragic figure—is chiefly remembered today for her unsuccessful feud in the 1930s with Linus Pauling over the molecular architecture of proteins. Drawing on her own personal and professional relationship with Wrinch and archival research, Marjorie Senechal reassesses the life and work of this provocative woman who worked unceasingly to make her mark in the male-dominated world of science.
