Marjorie G. Ruddy was a photographer and newspaper reporter who came to Whitby in 1917 and attended Whitby High School and the Ontario Ladies College. She founded the first company of the Girl Guides in Whitby and enlisted in the Canadian Womens Army Corp. (C.W.A.C.) where she worked as X-ray dark room technician at Chorley Park Military Hospital and was later appointed press liaison officer at the Trinity Barracks on Harbord Street. She became the first female councilor in Whitby in 1949. She wrote for the Globe and Mail and had a photography studio in Whitby, Ontario, Canada.
