Fred Hoyle: An Online Exhibition

A History of Hoyle in 10 Objects

They particularly caught the interest and imagination of the Hoyle Project Associate, and tell the story of Hoyle's life and work, illuminating both his achievements and personality. They were displayed in St John's College Old Library on Saturday 19th March 2011 at the grand finale of the Project.
