History

Liz studied Dentistry at Liverpool University and worked as a school dentist in Edinburgh between approximately 1963 and 1975 before working as a local authority dentist(?) in the Midlothian area, until her retirement, aged 50, in 1990.
A keen amateur botanist and hillwalker, Liz started volunteer work soon after “retirement” at the Royal Museum Annexe in Granton and at the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh. She regularly volunteered for the Botanical Survey of Scotland, which involved identifying and recording all the flora in a given square kilometre of countryside. She had a particular interest in taxonomy, and her work at the Botanics involved assisting Richard Pankhurst in cataloguing of the Rosaceae family.
With many thanks to Liz's family for this information.
