States, and in campaigning against the war in Vietnam. She made many visits to China, Vietnam, and the Soviet Union.
Hodgkin also served as a mentor to an enormous number of currently successful crystallographers, including many women who have continued in her footsteps such as Jenny Pickworth Glusker, Barbara Low, Judith Howard, Maureen Mackay, Eleanor Dodson, and Margaret Adams. J. D. Dunitz has written that
Dorothy had an unerring instinct for sensing the most significant structural problems in this field, she had the audacity to attack these problems when they seemed well-nigh insoluble, she had the perseverance to struggle onward where others would have given up, and she had the skill and imagination to solve these problems once the pieces of the puzzle began to take shape. It is for these reasons that Dorothy's contribution has been so special. 5
Her contributions to science and world peace were truly remarkable. She died on July 30, 1994.
