We are deeply saddened by the news that Dr Margaret Rayner CBE, Emeritus Fellow in Mathematics, died on 31 May 2019.

Dr Rayner first came to St Hilda's as a temporary part-time lecturer in Maths aged 24 in 1953. She went on to become Fellow in Maths and a longserving Vice-Principal in the 1980s. Dr Rayner was an admired mathematician and a much-loved tutor. In retirement, she turned historian and was the author of the College's centenary history. She will be missed greatly by her former colleagues, students, and friends at St Hilda's.
