According to the scant information available, T. A. Lawrenson seems to have studied Chemistry at the University of Cambridge, and later became a botanically interested headmaster in the Newcastle-South Tyneside Area. This could explain the naming of 'Miss Flora Mitten', who was a well-known pharmaceutical chemist.
