Worsley was a pioneering computer scientist and the first female in Canada to make significant contributions to the field of computing. Her experiences and accomplishments were remarkable. When Beatrice Worsley died in 1972, Canada lost a computer pioneer and a witness to several great moments in computing history. This biography aims to provide insight into Worsley's obscure, but remarkable and all too short, career.
