This display was inspired by our acquisition in March 2016 of Grace Chisholm Young's heavily annotated copy of the book she co-authored with her husband, mathematician W.H. Young, The Theory of Sets of Points (CUP 1906). The display features material on a wide range of topics by women who were scholars, educators and interpreters of scientific information from the mid 18th to the early 20th centuries.
