I was not aware of this splendid 1977 issue of Aldrichimica Acta dedicated to RB. It has an insightful article by David Dolphin containing memories I have not heard recounted elsewhere. One of the more curious part of the article narrates the story of a horoscope that was prepared for Woodward! Read on...probably his most important piece of advice was:
"There is not time to worry over what others think of us..."
Also, I was hoping that someone who stumbles upon this blog would have a personal photograph of Woodward to contribute to our Wikipedia article on him. I have contributed considerably to this article and in fact was the first to expand it from a two sentence piece to a bonafide article, but could never locate a photo that didn't have a copyright.
