Enter Mary Trevelyan, who becomes Warden of Student Movement House. There would be no International Students House without her commitment, perseverance, and devotion to her students. After spending a year in India and Sri Lanka, she returned to London to find work.

“In London I noticed groups of Indians on the streets looking lost in the wintry rain, snow and bitter winds. I had intended to return to the musical profession but began to wonder if I might be able to do something to help these young men since I had spent such a happy year in their country. And this, though I did not know it at the time, was the beginning of the end as far as my own musical future was concerned. I have never regretted this change of direction.”
