Biography
  • The Marks family figured prominently in the social, scientific and medical spheres of Brisbane society from 1879 until the death of Dr Elizabeth Nesta (Patricia) Marks in 2002. Charles Ferdinand Marks (1852-1941) emigrated to Queensland in 1879 where he had a distinguished career as a medical practitioner and politician. His step-son, Joseph Espie Dods, and sons, Edward (Ted) Oswald Marks and Alexander (Alec) Hammett Marks, were all doctors who served during World War I. Ted Marks married Ernestine (Nesta) Roberta Barbara Drury in London in 1914. After the war he had a distinguished career as an ophthalmologist in Brisbane. His daughter, Elizabeth Nesta (Patricia) Marks (1918-2002) was an eminent entomologist, carrying out world recognised research into mosquitoes and malaria.
