Miss  Eileen  Guppy  (c.1904–1980),  an  accomplished  petrologist  and  analytical  chemist,  was  promoted  to  assistant  geologist  in  1943  and  became  the  first  female  geology graduate to be appointed to the scientific staff of the  Survey.  However,  despite  her  abilities  Miss  Guppy  was  summarily  demoted  after  the  Second  World  War.  It  is  not  clear  if  this  was  related  to  completion  of  ‘war  duties’  or  to  Department  of  Scientific  and  Industrial  Research regulations! However, she continued as a personal scientific assistant to the Survey Director.    Latterly  she  worked  with  inspectors  from  the  Public  Record  Office  evaluating  the  older  records  from  the  Geological  Survey  and  Museum.  When  she  retired  in  1966  she  was  awarded  the  MBE  for  her  loyal  service.  It  is  noteworthy  that  the  archives  reveal  that  Miss  Hendricks and Miss Guppy (both were unmarried as, officially, female Survey officers had to resign  on  marriage  up  until  1975)  made  significant  contributions  to  Survey  publications,  but  their authorship was not credited on the majority of the published volumes.
