  • An entry in the Cheltenham Ladies' College Magazine for 1908 runs: "We are receiving help in the Logic and Philosophy classes from Miss BE Meyer who comes from Painswick every Thursday to lecture in College. Miss Meyer is well-known as the translator of Hffding's History of Modern Philosophy and Philosophy of Religion. She is an MA of Dublin University and was in Class 1 in both parts I and II of the Moral Science Tripos at Cambridge at which university she held the Cobden Scholarship. Miss Meyer has lectured at King's College, and also at Westfield College, London."
  • There is a record of a Miss Beatrice Ethel Meyer sailing on 18 April 1920 from Glasgow on the Nestor (Blue Funnel Line) to Sydney, Australia. As her father was born in New Zealand, this may have been a trip to re-establish family ties.
