Evelyn Maitland Roy

Evelyn Maitland Roy was born in 1908 in Southampton and brought up in the Wirral. She attended West Kirby County High School for Girls before undertaking a two-year teacher-training course at St Mary’s, Cheltenham from 1928 to 1930 taking PE as her main subject.

Evelyn held teaching posts in Wirral before the war and also achieved great personal success in swimming and diving locally, eventually becoming an instructor and judge. In 1940 she won a scholarship with the English-Speaking Union for their Summer School at Chautauqua in New York State. In her spare time, Evelyn liked to write and had many articles published in newspapers and magazines. In 1944 she was appointed teacher of Girls’ PE at Alleyne’s Grammar School, Stone, Staffordshire for a year and then became County Organiser for Flintshire for the Land Army. She returned to teaching and spent six years from 1948 working at British Army Schools in Greece, Malta, Austria and Libya.

Following retirement from full-time work in 1974 at the age of sixty-five, Evelyn became one of the first students of the Open University and was awarded an Honours Degree in 1981. She kept active both physically and mentally, going for long walks with her Sheltie dogs, coaching children, reading and writing her journal. She died at the age of ninety-eight in 2007.
