On retirement in 2003, Rita Greer began the Robert Hooke project, "to put him back into history" - give him images, raise his profile and obtain memorials for him in the City of London (St. Paul's Cathedral and Monument Square) and painted memorials elsewhere e.g. Gresham College, Open University, University of Oxford, Willen Church.

The papers of one of Britains greatest scientists, which were lost for centuries and saved for the nation in a £1 million sale last year, become available to read online today.
The innovative digital folio provides unprecedented public access to hundreds of pages of manuscript notes and minutes kept by Robert Hooke, who is sometimes described as Britains Leonardo da Vinci.
The remarkable collection contains Hookes minutes of early meetings of the Royal Society, taken while he was curator of experiments and then secretary of the national academy of science, between 1661 and 1692.
They record many of the scientists own experiments and others conducted by figures such as Sir Isaac Newton and Sir Christopher Wren, as well as the disputes and rivalries that arose among the founding fathers of British science.
