Admin HistoryAlfred Abraham Bernard Rubenstein was born 3 Apr 1911, and registered as an undergraduate of East London College in Sep 1930 to study Chemistry. He graduated with 2nd Class Hons in 1933, and then began studying towards an MSc in Chemistry. Between Jun 1935 and Jun 1936, the time of submitting his Thesis, he had changed his name to Alfred Arthur Bernard Harvey. Whilst attending East London College, Alfred Rubenstein was president of the Students' Union and was present when Queen Mary College received its Charter in 1935. Following his graduation from Queen Mary College, Alfred Harvey continued to be involved with the College. At one point, when Mile End Hospital was expected to close he argued that it should be retained and that the College should become involved in the training of doctors.

Joyce Elizabeth Harvey, nee Gale, was born 24 Aug 1914 in Dorset, and entered as a student of East London College in Oct 1933 to study English. She shared a room at Forest Lodge, the Women's Hall of Residence, with Josephine Tooke, nee Hampson, and Beatrice Worthing. Joyce Gale graduated with 2nd Class Hons in English in 1936. Whilst at East London College and Queen Mary College she was a member of the swimming club, hockey club, lawn tennis club, women's badminton club, table tennis club, and the Union Committee.
