Margaret Young Doyle was born in Arlington, Massachusetts where she attended Arlington High School before she came to Radcliffe to concentrate in mathematics.
Following her graduation in 1940, Doyle worked in the Actuarial Department at Liberty Mutual Insurance Company in Boston for 5 and a half years. She married Gregory E. Doyle in 1945 and they had two sons and one daughter. The family moved to several different cities when Mr. Doyle was transferred, finally settling in a Baltimore suburb.
After a divorce in 1972 Doyle worked at Alexander and Alexander (BENEFACTS) doing clerical work and proofreading (1974-1985). Retired as of 1985, she wrote in her Fiftieth Reunion Book, "I'm keeping house for myself, my daughter, Marjorie, one Golden Retriever and 2 cats and that's a full time job!"


The scrapbook (1938-1941) contains newspaper clippings about Radcliffe College events and students, programs, and tickets.
