I hope that the previous three posts have given an insight into the full and active lives of Evelyn Baxter and Leonora Rintoul. Looking back at their story, the pair seemed destined to become the dynamic duo that they were - beginning their lives so close together in time and place, sharing common interests and talents and having the means to pursue their areas of interest so vigorously for so long. It also seemed meant to be that the culmination of their lifelong quest to thoroughly record the bird life of Scotland was realised towards the end of their lives, with the completion of their two-volume work (see image below). I will no doubt revisit theses ladies lives in future posts, as there is much more to discover. Among other things, I plan to read their journals in more detail, examine their wartime work and seek out examples of their handicrafts.
