Meher A.D. Naoroji, Edinburgh medical graduate, 1906: photo
Someone recently passed onto me the following item of interest: a photograph of a graduating class of female medical students at the University of Edinburgh in 1906. Included here is Meher A.D. Naoroji, the granddaughter of Dadabhai Naoroji. She’s the only Indian in the class. Meher was not the first in her family to study at Edinburgh — her aunt, Manekbai or Maki, earned qualifications as a doctor from the university sometime in the late 1890s. Both she and her fiance agreed to finish their higher education qualifications before getting married back in Bombay.
