Note on Husband: Edmund George Vincent PERCIVAL

After graduating, he went to McGill University in Montreal for a year to do research on wood pulp. On returning, he worked for Sir Norman Haworth at Birmingham University on the structure of ascorbic acid (vitamin C) - for which Haworth won the Nobel Prize in 1937. According to his wife, Elizabeth, nee Kempson, he was always bitter about the lack of recognition he got for his work in this area. It was always thus in academic circles.

 

He wrote a book - Structural Carbohydrate Chemistry, which was first published in 1950.

It was updated by his wife, Elizabeth, and republished in 1962.
