Hodgkin visited India as President of the Symposium on Biomolecular Structure, Conformation, Function and Evolution held in Madras and as C.V. Raman Visiting Professor at the Universities of Madras and Bangalore. She gave the presidential address to the symposium and, at the Winter School on Current Trends in Biomolecular Structure which followed, gave a lecture on 'The refinement of the crystal structure of insulin'. While in Madras Hodgkin also gave a public lecture on 'Some experiences in X-ray analysis'.

Hodgkin was in India for a month, and received many invitations to lecture or to visit. Most were declined, but she spent some time in Bangalore, attended an Indian Pugwash Society workshop on 'Guidelines for International Scientific Cooperation for Development' in Delhi, and participated in a workshop on 'Chemical Evolution, Orgin of Life and Evolution of Life Processes' at Hyderabad.

Correspondence re arrangements for visit to Madras, includes correspondence with International Union of Crystallography re sponsorship of symposium.
