Administrative / Biographical History

Marguerite (Rita) Linck Hutchison (née Sclanders), the daughter of Robert Sclanders, a provision merchant, was born in Glasgow in 1897  . She was a student at the University of Glasgow from 1915-1919  .

She also achieved a DPH (Diploma in Public Health) from RCPS Edinburgh and RFPS Glasgow in 1922. Rita worked as a lecturer of Clinical Medicine at the Glasgow Royal Infirmary and then went on to work as the Medical Officer at the Family Planning Association, Glasgow.
