On the far right of this group is the university administrator and chemist, Dame Rosemary Murray (1913-2004), who played a central role in improving the position of women at Cambridge. This photograph shows the first dinner in New Hall with fourteen of the first sixteen undergraduates. Seated next to Murray is Robin Hammond (d. 2010), a tutor at New Hall, and Mary Boothman, the college's first domestic staff, stands by the door.
