started the then 5-year Veterinary Science course at Pretoria University in 1954 and during the 4 years of study at Onderstepoort was the only lady in the first “big” class of 30 students. At the end of 1958 she qualified with distinctions in Surgery, Gynaecology and Special Hygiene of Meat and Milk and was awarded the ICI Prize for Surgery and Gynaecology.
