Margaret Scott Briggs, who taught physical education at the Bryn Mawr School for more than four decades, died Saturday of a cerebral infarction at the Holly Hill Manor nursing home on Stevenson Lane in Towson. She was 81.
Miss Briggs was a native of Fort Dodge, Iowa, who moved to Baltimore with her family and was a 1929 graduate of Bryn Mawr. She received her professional training at the Chelsea School of Physical Education in London.
Known at the girls' school simply as Briggs, she taught there from 1934 until her retirement in 1975. She also operated the Gordon Hill Day Camp at the school for many summers and was a member of the local field hockey and lacrosse associations.
She had no survivors and no services are planned, but memorial contributions could be made to the Holly Hill Activity Program at the nursing home, 531 Stevenson Lane, Towson 21204, or to a memorial fund at Bryn Mawr.
