SYMHC Classics: Alan Turing, Codebreaker


Alan Turing, age 16 Public domain

This is a revisit of a Sarah and Deblina episode on Alan Turing, who conceived of computers decades before anyone was building one. He also acted as a top-secret code breaker during World War II. Despite his accomplishments, he was prosecuted as a homosexual by the British government.
