Death of Julie Ann Macqueen

The social work community has been saddened to hear of the death of Julie Ann Macqueen, an alumna and benefactor of the University of Edinburgh.

There is a summary of Julie Ann’s remarkable contributions to social work and the support she provided to one parent families on the Centenary website: http://www.socialwork.ed.ac.uk/centenary/people/alumni/julie-ann_macqueen. In 2017 Julie Ann gifted funds to support the university in making scholarships available to doctoral students interested in studying one parent families. The first recipient, Luke Campbell, commenced study in September 2018, and the second recipient, Oluwatoyin Adenugba, will begin her studies in September 2019. To commemorate Julie Ann’s life and work we intend to hold a memorial lecture later this year.
