About the Book
Margaret Marrow was born in Walthamstow, North London in 1906 and died in Watford in 2003. She lived through two World Wars, survived four monarchs and twenty prime ministers.
The strands of Margaret Marrow's care and concern for her own family and for all humankind run through the story of her life, which is recounted in her words in this volume.
The book has been edited for publication by Margaret's children, Jonathan and Bridget.
Worked as a young doctor as a Government Medical Officer in Botswana. Spent most of my career caring for patients brought to hospital as emergencies. My design portfolio includes the preparation of material for lecture presentations and posters, internal publication of volumes of clinical guidelines and the production of family greetings cards over many years, using a wide variety of techniques. More recently I have held a brief to create and reinforce a brand image for the Royal College of Emergency Medicine. Now retired from clinical work, much of my time is spent organising and copying photographs, writings and art work collected over the years.
