    Janet Taylor

    Gentlemen,

    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.

    Best

    Wolfgang
