MAIN BARBARA YORK The School of Biological Sciences, UWA, was very saddened to hear of the passing of Adjunct Professor York Main, OAM. Known as the Lady of the Spiders, she gained her PhD in Zoology in 1956, being the first female to do so. A quiet and graceful achiever, she worked until recently, lighting up our lives with her passion and wonder for the animal world. She will be much missed. Our thoughts are with her family.
MAIN (Barbara York):
