About Margaret Ruth Walcott
He [Derek Walcott] then married Margaret Maillard, with whom he had a live-in partnership before marriage. She was an almoner in a hospital in Port of Spain, but was equally active as a dancer and painter. They had two daughters; Elizabeth Walcott Hackshaw, and Anna Walcott Hardy.
Together with her former husband they formed the Trinidad Theatre Workshop. “I don’t know, how we will do without her going forward,” Lovelace said. Master designer Brian MacFarlane said, “it is sad to see Margaret, such a strong individual in society, who has given so much to country, leave.” Nevertheless, he said, “She has left us with a legacy and given us the hope to continue.”
