Caption: Tompkins and Bramley, US scientists, dining at Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA, in around 1935. US mathematician Charles Brown Tompkins (1912-1971, left) obtained his PhD at the University of Michigan in 1935. He specialised in numerical analysis and computing, and played a key role in establishing the computing centre at the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA). US physicist Jenny Bramley (1909-1997, nee Rosenthal, centre) had obtained her PhD in physics in 1929 from New York University, the first woman to obtain a PhD in the USA. She studied electro-optics and electroluminescence. Both attended the 1935 University of Michigan Summer Session.
