Dorothy Forster Hodgkin, née Smith, 1937-1974
Hodgkin's mother-in-law, wife of R.H. Hodgkin q.v. The Hodgkins had bought Crab Mill, Ilmington, for their eventual retirement. It became a favourite weekend retreat for all the family. Dorothy and Thomas Hodgkin used it in their turn as a retirement home, and as a peaceful retreat for colleagues. Most of the letters are sent from Crab Mill; some from the early 1940s are from Queen's College Oxford, where Robin Hodgkin was Provost. Later letters (from 1968) are from The Grey House, Ilmington. Not all are dated.
