Marelene Rayner-Canham is a retired instructor in Physics and Geoff Rayner-Canham is a professor of Chemistry at the Grenfell Campus of Memorial University.

"It offers a comprehensive treasury of valuable biographical information, accompanied by many analytical insights, for anyone interested in the history of women in science." Historical Studies in Education "Creating Complicated Lives provides an essential historical backdrop to the current debates about ``women and science.'' It is my hope that a new generation of scholars will pick up this research agenda and contribute to the expansion of the history of women scientists in Canada, a field to which the name of Marianne G. Ainley is inextricably linked." Canadian Historical Review
