Alfred Rupert Hall (26 July 1920--5 February 2009) and Marie Boas Hall (18 October 1919--23 February 2009) (2010)


The deaths of Rupert and Marie Hall prompt reflections not only on their work and its influence but also on the fact that what is now recognized as the discipline of the history of science is relatively new. Rupert and Marie came from very different backgrounds, but each exemplifies certain expectations about what it meant to be a historian of science in the years immediately following the end of the Second World War.
