Norman Marrow was born in West Bromwich in 1907 and died in Watford in 1999. He wrote this autobiographical "letter" soon after his first grandchild was born in 1968. His description of his childhood in the industrial Black Country makes fascinating social history. He describes his education and his career as a teacher of Classical languages at Watford Grammar School. With his wife, Margaret, Norman joined Quakers in 1937. His beliefs and values had a profound effect on all aspects of his life, particularly during the hard times around the 2nd World War.
Norman's writing has been edited for publication by his children, Bridget and Jonathan Marrow
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 by many different methods and over many years. More recently I have held a brief to create and reinforce a brand image for the College of Emergency Medicine, which was established in 2006. Now retired from clinical work, much of my time is spent organising and copying photographs, writings and art work collected over the years.
