The following email has been received in connection with a 1960s photo seen in the photo archive:
It was lovely to see a photograph of Mixton as I remember it. I am Mrs King's great nephew, and that year (1964) I met her for the first time. She was also a zoologist, and her husband worked with one of the top scientists in the US prior to WW1. She had an extraordinary intellect and was truly a remarkable woman, way ahead of her time and published ground breaking research with a fellow of the royal society on nuclear division. I note that I can see the wire netting frames on the windows. Her sister who also lived there, used to feed the birds and they eventually took to entering the house and so they had to install wire netting on the windows to keep them out.
Your spelling of Mr Kalloway's name is incorrect - just so you know! (Now corrected!)
