I am Marie Alexina Annette Beard's great niece, grand daughter of William Egon Halman Beard who was at University with both his sister, his brother and Matthew. I'm trying to find out more about the careers of both Matthew and Marie as they are supposed to have been great philanthropists and did a lot of public health work in Jamaica and then on the Gold Coast. I have read that not only did they study and work together but my aunt served as an RMO just like her brother and Matthew which I find fascinating, I'm trying to find out more about Marie and Matthew's life together they sound like fantastic people.
My grandmother was Ruth Cassidy and also from Glasgow and met my grandfather as a student. She was a pawn brokers daughter.
You can read their graduation stories and certificates on Glasgow University's website.
