Dr Dryburgh is a retired consultant biochemist who was head of the Biochemistry Department at Glasgow Royal Infirmary. For twenty years she attended various History of Art classes at Glasgow University and this led to guiding at Kelvingrove, foreign study tours and membership of Friends of Glasgow Museums. More recently, as a 'Friend', she has been researching the donors of paintings in the Glasgow Museums' collections, and this project forms the basis of her talk to the Society.
