Margarita Comas Camps
Margarita Comas Camps was a great educator. She was awarded a scholarship by the Junta para la Ampliación de Estudios in England, the country in which she found herself in when the Civil War broke out and where she lived in exile, defending coeducation and the need for scientific education from childhood. She took care of the Basque children evacuated to England in 1937. She worked as a teacher at the emblematic Darlington Hall, in the county of Devon. She returned to Menorca with her husband, the photographer and painter Guillem Bestard, during the final years of Francoism. She maintained her residence in the south-west of England, where she died.
