Dates of existence
Margery Olive McCuaig (nee Scott) was born in Winnipeg on June 24, 1915. Margery, also known as Peggy, was a University of British Columbia chemistry and biology graduate (BSc'36) and was an active member of science clubs, the Alpha Omicron Pi sorority, Phrateres, and the grass hockey team.
After graduating, McCuaig became a teacher in the Richmond School District in British Columbia. She married Milburn McCuaig and had a daughter, Mavis Jean Hall (nee McCuaig), BSc'65. Margery McCuaig had the opportunity to travel to Japan in the summer of 1939 and collected a variety of printed and photographic material. She traveled to Japan again, as well as Korea, in 1962 to revisit the cities and families that she had encountered on her 1939 trip. McCuaig kept the memorabilia from both trips until her death in Vancouver, British Columbia in December, 1992.
