A thesis, glass tubes, a bronze plaque. This is the evidence left to remember world-class atmospheric physicist Jean Laby. She was the first woman to achieve a PhD in the School of Physics in 1956.

Jade Murray explores the University of Melbourne Parkville campus to search for the forgotten stories of women in science.
