A History of Hoyle in 10 Objects

10: What was Fred Really Like?

Hoyle has, perhaps, a reputation for being antagonistic. Although he was certainly a tough opponent in an argument and a man who stood by his opinions, it's clear that he also took great pleasure in his work and his hobbies.

This is one the Hoyle Project Associate's favourite photographs from the Hoyle Collection. It shows Hoyle out in the countryside in the 1970s.
