  • Request

Elisabeth ('Betty') Murray read history and shared Hodgkin's archaeological interests. She was Registrar and Domestic Bursar at Girton College Cambridge, 1938-1948, and Principal of Bishop Otter College Chichester, 1948-1970. Ferry refers passim to the attentive kindness Murray showed to Hodgkin at Oxford when she was over-working. Murray's letters, almost all carefully typed, often contain amusing accounts of 1930s life and travel, archaeological digs etc. See also MS. Eng. c. 5580/12 in the main Hodgkin papers.
