Established in 1984 by Dame Margaret Blackwood's friends and associates at the University of Melbourne in recognition of her pioneering scientific and academic career: (BSc 1938; MSc 1939; LLD 1983).
She was an esteemed scholar in the discipline of Genetics, and became Senior Associate and Reader in Botany before retiring.
Many of her high-ranking appointments were the first to be held by a woman. As the University's first female deputy chancellor, in 1980, she was the first woman in the University's history to confer degrees.
Dame Margaret Blackwood died in 1986.
