A scrapbook belonging to Don Thomas was donated by Ruth containing caricature sketches of Teachers (Masters) and staff members of Scotch College.
The book dates from 1948 to 1980 and includes photographic copies of the original sketches, which Don gifted to fellow staff members.
Don Thomas was a Master at the College for over forty years. He was the first Archivist at the school. Don held a Bachelor of Honours in Education and a Diploma of Communication Art, his passion despite teaching Biology and English subjects, was art. Don perfected his caricature drawing by taking a correspondence course during WW2.
Many of the old boys remember Don fondly. Some OSC's state that he could climb down the Memorial Oval stairs on his bare hands while doing a hand stand. Don learnt gym as a young man and practiced for many years.
Do was a Housemaster for Cameron House and was nicknamed 'Beady Eyes' as the students swore he had eyes in the back of his head. Don passed away in July 1992.
Ruth Marrion is married to Tony Marrion who was a school teacher at the College for many years and was the Head of the Science department.
