DescriptionSection A, Biographical, is the largest in the collection. It includes obituaries of Watson and her own autobiographical notes for her Royal Society personal record, records of her career and some of the honours accorded her. There are also the letters of condolence John Sutton received on her death, many with recollections of Watson. A particularly interesting component of this section are the poems and short stories by Watson (possibly including some by her sister and mother) chiefly dating from the 1940s. There are also a number of photographs of Watson including some from visits to East Germany in connection with the International Geological Correlation Programme.
