Mary Cartwright with J. E. Littlewood FRS first observed the phenomena which developed into Chaos Theory. Thus she had a significant effect on the modern world. She was the only woman so far to be a president of the London Mathematical Society, one of the first to be a Fellow of the Royal Society, and the first woman to serve on its Council. She was born on 17 December 1900 and died on 3 April 1998.
