About the Book
Angela Mahler taught Art at Mayflower, a progressive secondary school in Nigeria, from 1964 to 1966. She traveled widely in West Africa when work allowed and wrote many letters to friends and family, describing what she saw and experienced. Her letters from Nigeria are collected in this volume. It is a personal memoir, full of vivid descriptions of people and places which she observed.
Jonathan Marrow and Angela were married in 1967. Very sadly, Angela died in 1976 but Jonathan kept her letters together. Friends and family very kindly shared more correspondence too so that Jonathan could produce this book. Most of the words are Angela's.
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.
