Case for David Livingstone Medal - Royal Scottish Geographical Society Gold 22kt, 190g

Marion Newbigin exerted a powerful influence upon the development of geography by her own writings and teaching as well as by her admirable editing of the Scottish Geographical Magazine since 1902. Dr. Newbigin, who was born at Alnwick in 1869, was one of a group of pioneer women who received university training in natural science, and after studying at University College, Aberystwyth and at the University of Edinburgh she graduated as a B.Sc. of London in 1893. Devoting herself to zoology, she quickly established a reputation by her work on pigmentation in animals.

Bequeathed to the RSGS by the recipient and later purchased by Iain Bartholomew for £60.
