Millicent Elizabeth "Betty" Forbes was born in Hespeler (now Cambridge), Ontario on July 10, 1924 alongside her twin sister, Peg, to parents Millicent Lyall and George Alexander Forbes. Betty grew up at the Forbes family estate, Hillhead, in Hespeler and attended Bishop Strachan School in Toronto, before attending the School for Nurses at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto for between 1943 and 1946. The Forbes family fonds contains records related to the Forbes, Buck, Land, Wilson, and Kaufman families, predominately created, and accumulated by, Betty Forbes. It includes items related to their education, careers, and recreational activities such as camping.
