John Turton Randall (1905-1984), British physicist and biophysicist, using a microscope. Randall worked in several areas of physics, including radar during the Second World War. His major achievement was leading the team that worked in the early 1950s at King's College London, using X-ray diffraction to determine the structure of deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA). Although Randall played a key role in assembling the team, the main recognition went to his deputy, Maurice Wilkins, with a share of the 1962 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine. In 1946, Randall had been elected Fellow of the Royal Society and awarded its Hughes Medal. He was knighted in 1962.
