Marion Crosley enrolled at the University for one year in 1883, aged 47, to study Divinity and Ethics under Professor Edward Caird.

Crosley, the son of a farmer, came to Glasgow from Utica, New York, as a Universalist minister to serve in the absence of Caroline Soule, the first woman to be ordained as a minister in the UK and minister at St Paul's Universalist Church in Pitt Street, Glasgow.
