She died on 11 March 2015 at the age of 97 in Cambridge.


Born Marion Rous in New York, she was the eldest of three daughters of the American pathologist Francis Peyton Rous, winner of the 1966 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine, and his wife, Marion de Kay. She studied at the Dalton School in New York City, and Swarthmore College in Pennsylvania.

Hodgkin became Children's Book Editor at Macmillan Publishing Company, which she joined in 1966. Until her arrival, Macmillan had never had a children's literature department, even though its authors included Lewis Carroll and Rudyard Kipling. Picture books that she edited included Kevin Crossley-Holland's The Green Children (1969) and Graham Oakley's Church Mouse series. She rejected Roald Dahl's work twice. She retired from Macmillan in 1978 when her husband was named master of Trinity College, Cambridge.


She was a successful writer of children's literature in her own right, including Young Winter's Tales, Student Body (1950), and Dead Indeed (1955). The last two were detective stories, based on her time at Swarthmore College and Viking Press, respectively.


She married Alan Lloyd Hodgkin in 1944; they had met while he was working at the Rockefeller Institute in 1938. They had three daughters and one son. Jonathan Hodgkin became a molecular biologist at Cambridge University. Deborah Hodgkin is a psychologist. Her husband won the Nobel Prize for biology in 1963.
