Sample text

Kate eventually resigned her curatorship, and the couple, relying on Townshend's independent income, devoted their lives to botanical exploration (together and separately), research, and writing. As Ogilvie shows, nepotism and a certain amount of creativity in circumventing institutional restraints combined to sustain the largely collaborative partnership of the Maunders (chapter 16). In 1890, unhappy with his subordinate position at the Royal Observatory at Greenwich and concerned about advancing professionalism in British astronomy, Walter Maunder formed the British Astronomical Association (BAA), which was open to amateurs and women as well as more established men astronomers.

The collection uncovers credit sharing ranging from that which was meritocratic and gender-neutral through plagiarism, by which a husband, often with his wife's complicity, signed his name alone to joint work. Although this study explicitly concerns scientific creativity in the context of cross-gender, formalized intimacy, some of its conclusions hold the promise of general significance in the study of scientific collaboration, since, like scientific couples, unisexual research teams or those pairing unmarried women and men were (and are) controlled by power relationships, personalities, and institutional factors as well as accepted scientific methods and norms.
