Rosalind Elsie Franklin
Birth: Jul. 25, 1920
Death: Apr. 16, 1958

One of the most remarkable women scientists of the last century, her initial research was in carbon fibre technology. Her later work took her into X-ray diffraction and her photographs of DNA gave the initial clue to the molecule's 'double-helix' structure. Had her career not been cut short by cancer, she would have deserved to share in the Nobel Prize awarded in 1962 to Crick, Watson and Wilkins. (bio by: David Conway) 

Cause of death: Ovarian cancer
 
Burial:
Willesden United Synagogue Cemetery
Willesden

Sometimes my students come in from their science class and they are talking about you! It makes my heart happy. I am related to Bernard Mocheson's first wife, Leonora Straus. Bernard's second wife was Muriel Bentwich, part of your dad's sister's family.
