Dentist. Born Lilian Murray at 29 Hungerford Road, Holloway. After being refused training in London, she was accepted by the Edinburgh Dental Hospital and School. She practised in London and Edinburgh, and in 1946 became the first female President of the British Dental Association. Died at 26 Wolverton Avenue, Kingston upon Thames.

The British Dental Association's pdf about their library at 23 Russell Square, has a photo of Lindsay in the library and describes her role. We understand that she lived there in an upstairs flat, 1920 -1935.
