Nationality for categorisation[edit]

copied from User Talk:Vernon39

Hello! I just added the category British Quakers to Kathleen Lonsdale. Her name is mentioned on List of Quakers, but she had no quaker category. Problem: was she british or irish (birth place)? I looked at this page because of an article in "Cahiers de la Réconciliation", Paris, Janvier 1963. -- MHM-en (talk) 19:40, 12 September 2008 (UTC)

She joined the RSoF in 1935, having been brought up as a Baptist and having moved to England with her parents, aged 5. I would say she was a British Quaker.Vernon White . . . Talk 21:06, 12 September 2008 (UTC)
The ODNB article: Gill Hudson, ‘Lonsdale , Dame Kathleen (1903–1971)’, Oxford Dictionary of National Biography, Oxford University Press, 2004 accessed 12 Sept 2008 ("Kathleen saw her life as scientist, Quaker, and mother as inextricably linked") does not indicate any nationalistic feelings of identity, so it is difficult to assign any National pigeon-hole.

If the Neutron was discovered in 1932 how come that Kathleen Lonsdale established the structure of benzene by X-ray and neutron diffraction methods in 1929? Avihu (talk) 18:18, 1 January 2009 (UTC)

I'v just deleted the mention of "neutron" in the wikipedia Kathleen Lonsdale bio, since I've just seen that other bios speak of "x-ray diffraction" and never "x-ray and neutron diffraction".Seanwal111111 (talk) 20:39, 1 January 2009 (UTC)

"who established the structure of benzene"?[edit]

I was looking at this because she had been mentioned by the BBC, and I only knew of Kekulé - and as a big edit is planned I'm doing nothing - but surely she confirmed the structure of Benzene, rather than established it? Number774 (talk) 07:22, 26 September 2012 (UTC)

OK the big edit didn't happen, so referring to the text on [1], I've updated the major discoveries bit.Number774 (talk) 21:17, 26 December 2012 (UTC)

Added to Lead[edit]

Added she was one of two women elected to the RS in 1945; to make it parallel to article on Marjory Stephenson.Parkwells (talk) 15:35, 31 October 2012 (UTC)
