The solar physicist John Evershed is renowned both as an amateur and a professional astronomer.
In 1906 he married Mary Acworth Orr, who had already made her name as an observational astronomer, and would later prove her worth as an historian. From 1907 to 1923 they worked together at Kodiakanal Observatory in southern India - a period later described as 'the observatory's golden age'.
