MARY ANN BAXTER
1801-1884

Mary Ann Baxter's ideas and generous financial backing of over £120,000 (many millions in today's terms) allowed the establishment of University College, Dundee (now the University of Dundee). At her insistence, the institution was one of the first providers of equal higher education to women and men. She was also the co-donor of Baxter Park and supported a wide range of church causes.
