Have you seen this photograph of Joan Clarke from1936?

As we draw closer to the publication of Women Codebreakers, I wanted to share a previously unseen photograph of Joan Clarke (later Murray). More photographs as well as her letters and notes also feature in the book.

It was taken in 1936, the year she matriculated to Newnham College, Cambridge to study mathematics.

Joan Clarke (Murray) 1936

The book will definitely be out next week. Keep your eye on Amazon, or better still, sign up to the Bletchley Park Research Newsletter and I’ll drop you an email with the date. I will talk about the delays once it’s finally out.

Please feel free to share the photograph of Joan so we can all get to know her, but I ask that you also link back to this post or to http://www.bletchleyparkresearch.co.uk/research-notes/women-codebreakers/.
