Galton Collection (1929-1985) (circa)
Dorothy Galton (referred to in this catalogue as DG) (1901-1992) became
secretary in 1928 to Sir Bernard Pares, the director of what was then the
School of Slavonic Studies, King's College. In 1932 she became secretary
of the school as it was newly established as a self governing department
of London University. DG remained in this post until her retirement in
1961, seeing the school expand in the post war period. In 1945 she
visited the United States and Canada to report on Slavonic studies there.
During her long retirement DG devoted herself to the study of beekeeping
and published several works on the subject.
