Abstract

When Sir Arthur Smith Woodward began to lose his sight around 1940, his wife Maud persuaded him to record his memoirs. When he died in 1944, they were incomplete and Lady Smith Woodward added her own reminiscences to them with a view to having the whole published. It was not, and the manuscript was donated to the Museum by their daughter Margaret in 1966. These ‘Memories’ are now being made available online for the first time. They provide an invaluable insight into the lives of this eminent scientist and his wife, his constant companion through 50 years of marriage.

Supplementary material:

Lady Smith Woodward’s original typed manuscript has been transcribed, with footnotes and a few illustrations added. It is available at: www.geolsoc.org.uk/SUP18867
