Her interests expanded to include philosophy and philology and she moved to Germany to undertake research at the Goethe Archives in Weimar. From the early 1930s Rabe became a regular contributor to the US Science Service, writing articles on a wide breadth of topics. Photographed in Cambridge, UK, in 1938.
