    this Victorian story, Alan’s grandmother Fanny Turing succumbed to consumption in Julius Mathison Turing, Alan’s father, was the second son, born on 9 November Devoid of his father’s mathematical ability, he. was an able student of literature and history, and won a scholarship. Alan Turing was an extraordinary man who crammed into a life of only 42 years other careers besides secret codebreaker: he was also a mathematician, computer scientist and biologist. For example, with Tommy Flowers he built the first computer. A man ahead of his time, many of his theories and calculations are still relevant today.
