some of the last messages by George in 2010 were dealing with the writings of Janet Taylor. After many years the Crouchers have published their biography of that remarkable woman:
John S. Croucher and Rosalind F. Croucher; Mistress of Science: The Story of the Remarkable Janet Taylor, Pioneer of Sea Navigation, Stroud 2016.
I highly recommend it, as well as their related articles:
An Exceptional Woman of Science. In: Bulletin of the Scientific Instrument Society, Nr. 84 (March 2005), 22 - 27.
Mrs Janet Taylor's ‘Mariner's Calculator’: assessment and reassessment. In: British Journal for the History of Science, Vol. 44 (2010), no.4, 493 - 507.
