With her appointment in 1930 Eva Taylor became the first woman to occupy a chair of geography in the United Kingdom and the impact of her scholarly research is held in high regard.
She died in 1966 aged 87, and the EGR Taylor lectures, which take place in October every year, mark the anniversary of her birthday.
