Doris Lester

Like Muriel,Doris were educated at St Leonard's College, St Andrews, Aberdeen.

She followed Muriel to Bow in 1904.  

Doris, being interested in child welfare, enrolled into a teacher training college, learning skills that would become a blessing to the children of Bow.  An area in which for every hundred children born fifteen died before their first birthday.
