Stephen Hawking at his Oxford Graduation, 1962, black and white photograph, framed

While the majority of items in Stephen Hawking's office relate to his professional career as a physicist, a communicator, and a political activist, there are also a variety of items that relate to personal aspects of his life and upbringing, such as his tastes, passions, and fondest memories independent of his work as a physicist. Most of these aspects are well known by the public and have even become part of his personal 'brand'.
