Alan Turing, Enigma Code-Breaker and Computer Pioneer, Wins Royal Pardon

Alan Turing, British mathematician altered the course of the C. His 1936 paper laid the foundation of computer science, providing the first formal concept of a computer algorithm.

Joan Clarke Murray codebreaker at Bletchley Park during World War II, became deputy head of Hut 8 in 1944. Code breaking was almost exclusively done by men during the war. Clarke was paid less than the men and felt that she was prevented from progressing further because of her gender. She was a English cryptanalyst and numismatist. You have Joan and the women of Bletchley Park to thank for changing the History of the World AND the fact that you’re reading this on a computer!

Alan Turing was a quite brilliant mathematician, most famous for his work on breaking the German Enigma codes. It is no exaggeration to say that, without his outstanding contribution, the history of the Second World War could have been very different. He truly was one of those individuals we can point to whose unique contribution helped to turn the tide of war.
