Biographical history

Dr. Margaret Banks received a B.A. (Honours History) from Bishop's University in 1949. She was also that year's recipient of the Lieutenant Governor's Medal for History and the Governor General's Medal for Highest Standing in the Graduating Year. She went on to earn an M.A. and a Ph.D. at the University of Toronto, and she spent most of her career as Law Librarian at The University of Western Ontario. Margaret Banks died on 29 April 2010. Her will stipulated that the two medals she earned at Bishop's were to be given back to Bishop's. She was the first woman to receive the GG medal for highest standing in the academic year. Also left to Bishop's, a scrapbook compiled by Margaret's father, Thomas Banks,
containing photographs, newspaper clippings, and personal mementos of Margaret's three years at Bishop's (1946/47 - 1948/49).
