Fascinating little forensic facts from crime author Pauline Rowson
Here are a couple more.
Did you know the first woman appointed to be director of the Home Office Forensic Science Service was Margaret Pereira (1928-2016) in 1976. She was responsible for six regional laboratories, the research laboratory and more than 600 staff.
During the 1960s in collaboration with Lewis Nicholls (her laboratory director) she developed a method of identifying blood types from tiny bloodstains, a critical and highly important aspect of identifying or eliminating suspects in the days before DNA analysis.
She was also the first woman to give evidence in court as an expert witness in her field.
