Margaret Sibella Brown was born in 1866. She was the daughter of Richard Brown and Barbara (Davison) Brown. She was the twin sister of Elizabeth Purves Brown. Her three younger siblings were Annie, Richard, and Lillian.[1] She attended the Victoria School of Art and Design (later called the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design). She also served as one of the directorates. Because of her efforts to raise funds for its new campus, in 1934, Margaret received an honorary diploma from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design. Her work in botany secured her an honorary Masters of Arts from Acadia University in 1950.[2] She served as a Red Cross nurse during World War I.[3] She passed away in 1961.[4]
