Dr Margaret Elizabeth Varley (née Brown; born 28 September 1918; died 18 July 2009, aged 90) was born Peggy Brown in 1918 in Mussoorie, a hill station in the foothills of the Indian Himalayas where her father was in the Indian Civil Service and educated from an early age in Britain. From Malvern Girls’ College, she went in 1937 to Girton College, Cambridge, UK to study Natural Sciences (Zoology) under Dr Sidnie M. Manton FRS, who became a lifelong friend and fellow enthusiast for breeding cats. Several junior teaching jobs in Cambridge, interspersed with war service as a land girl working on a farm, enabled her to complete a PhD on the growth physiology of brown trout. This seminal research established her expertise in fish, especially economically important freshwater species: the 1946 publications from it are still cited today and led to her editing the famous two‐volume 1957 Academic Press treatise that effectively established the discipline of ecophysiology and became a citation classic in our field ( Brown 1957a,b ). In 1950–51, she joined her friend and collaborator Dr Rosemary Lowe‐McConnell studying freshwater fish in East Africa, especially those of Lake Victoria and trout stocked in highland streams
