25 July 1920 – 16 April 1958
Rosalind Franklin was an X-Ray Crystallographer whose work helped uncover the Double Helix structure of DNA. She is known as the Unsung Hero of the DNA Revolution and the Dark Lady of the DNA. She did excellent research on the physical structure of coal and graphite as well as tobacco mosaic virus and RNA.
If you ask me, she is the Woman who opened the Book of Living Secrets.
Would you like to know her Beautiful Story? Read The Dark Lady of DNA by Brenda Maddox and be inspired.
Or try Horace Freeland Judson’s essay “In Defense of Rosalind : The Myth of the Wronged Heroine” in his book The Eighth Day of Creation which is a beautiful piece.
