INTRODUCTION
This catalogue relates to the papers of Anne McLaren, a leading twentieth century
scientist in the field of mammalian reproductive and developmental biology and genetics.
The papers were donated to the library by McLaren in 2004.
Dame Anne Laura Dorinthea McLaren was born on 26 April 1927, the daughter of Henry
McLaren, 2nd Baron Aberconway and Christabel McNaughten. McLaren gained a degree
in Zoology from Lady Margaret Hall, Oxford University, before working under JBS
Haldane, Peter Medawar and Kingsley Sanders, obtaining her doctorate with a thesis
entitled ‘Factors affecting susceptibility to neurotropic viruses in rodents’ in 1952, the
same year in which she married fellow student Donald Michie.
McLaren and Michie worked together at University College London (1952-1955), and
then at the Royal Veterinary College (1955-1959). During this period they worked on the
nature versus nurture problem, effects of the maternal environment in mice, and
techniques of embryo transfer and implantation, which laid the foundations for in vitro
fertilisation. They divorced in 1959 but remained on good terms, with both of them
moving to the University of Edinburgh. Michie went on to become director of the
Machine Intelligence Research Unit whilst McLaren moved to the Institute of Animal
Genetics (1959-1974) continuing her work on mammalian fertility, embryo transfers,
immunocontraception and chimaeras. In 1974 she became director of the Medical
Research Council (MRC) Mammalian Development Unit in London, developing an
interest in the differentiation of mammalian primordial germ cells. McLaren retired from
the MRC in 1992 and became principal research associate at the Wellcome Trust/Cancer
Research UK Gurdon Institute in Cambridge, a position which she held until her death.
During her research career, she published more than 300 scientific papers.
In 1975 McLaren was made a fellow of the Royal Society, and was awarded one of the
Society’s Royal Medals in 1990. The following year McLaren became the first female
officer of the Royal Society, holding the posts of Foreign Secretary and Vice-President
from 1991-1996.
In 1986 she was made a fellow of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists
for her pioneering work on fertility, was President of the British Association for the
Advancement of Science (The BA) 1993-1994, president of the Society of
Developmental Biology, as well as a founder and President of AWISE (The Association
for Women in Science and Engineering). She was made a Dame Commander of the
British Empire (DBE) in 1993, though preferred to be known as Doctor rather than Dame
or Professor.
McLaren was awarded the Scientific Medal of the Zoological Society of London in 1967,
the Society for the Study of Fertility Marshall Medal in 1985, the Pioneer award of the
International Fertility Society in 1988 with Michie, the Society for Developmental
Biology Lifetime Achievement Award in 2001, the UNESCO Helena Rubinstein Award
for Women in Science in 2001, and the Japan Prize in 2002 with Andrzej Tarkowski.
Most recently she was also awarded the March of Dimes prize in Developmental Biology
in 2007.
McLaren also helped to craft the UK’s Human Fertilisation and Embryology Act 1990 as
a member of the Warnock Committee, and served as a member on the Human
Fertilisation and Embryology Authority for ten years.
McLaren died in a car accident travelling from Cambridge to London with her former
husband Donald Michie on 7 July 2007, aged 80.
