Photograph and life story of Margaret Rosenthal, president of Wheatley Society.

In 1960, Margaret Rosenthal was delighted to be offered the opportunity to run the English Department at Bletchley College. This was an emergency teacher training college, established after the war in the premises previously occupied by the Enigma Project. In 1965 the teacher training college was removed to purpose-built accommodation at Wheatley, now known as the Wheatley Campus of Oxford Brookes University. In the early 1970s, Margaret bought her own house in Farm Close Road, Wheatley. She retired from teaching in 1975, and became extremely active in the Wheatley Society, researching local archives for the History Group; transcribing the records of Wheatley Primary School; and some of the papers relating to the ownership of Wheatley Windmill. In recognition of the value of her work, she was made President of the Wheatley Society in 2001.
