Hodgkin's youngest sister, born 1918. Diana read Human Sciences at Somerville College Oxford. After her marriage to Graham Rowley, a Canadian archaeologist with special interests in Arctic reseach, she moved to Ottawa. Her letters, mainly typed, are long full accounts of family life, including accounts of her own and her husband's research and publications, and expeditions to Northern Canada; they spent a sabbatical year in Cambridge 1968-1969. Many of the letters bring Easter, Christmas or New Year greetings, or are sent for Hodgkin's birthday on 12 May. See also MS. Eng. c. 5580/1-2 in the main Hodgkin papers. See MS. Eng. c. 7923/9-11, for early school notebooks by Diana.
