Caption: Wilkins and Randall, DNA researchers. New Zealand-born British physicist and molecular biologist Maurice Wilkins (left, 1916-2004) shaking hands with British physicist and biophysicist Sir John Turton Randall (right, 1905-1984) at the latter's retirement party. Wilkins and Randall were respectively the deputy leader and leader of the project at King's College London that used X-ray diffraction to study the structure of DNA in the 1950s. The results supported the theories of Crick and Watson. For his work, Wilkins shared the 1962 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine with Crick and Watson. Randall was knighted in 1962. Photographed in 1970.
