Lyn Newman (1901-1973), an author and journalist, joined Girton College, Cambridge, in 1924, after a first degree at Aberdeen University. Her career as a journalist was stopped in 1934 by her marriage to the mathematician Max Newman, fellow of St John's College. During her life she corresponded with several members of the Bloomsbury Group, a group of artists and intellectuals.
