Chancellor of Bristol University


In 1970 Dorothy Hodgkin became Chancellor of the University of Bristol.
She was the first chancellor of the university always to visit the Students' Union and to have lunch with its officers, and she took a keen interest in the research of her crystallographic colleagues.
She supported the establishment of a Hodgkin Scholarship for a student from the Third World and of Hodgkin House to accommodate overseas students, both named after her late husband, a specialist in African studies.
