1966 UK Newspaper Article about Paula Boyd:

Her brother-in-law is a Beatle

SUDDENLY Paula Boyd is the most popular girl in her school.

Not because she is a brilliant pupil or tops at games - but because her brother-in-law is a Beatle.

She is the 14 year-old sister of Mrs. George Harrison. Since the Beatles guitarist married 21 year-old model Pattie Boyd, sister Paula has been idolised by the girls of Hazelhurst private school Wimbledon.

They ask for autographs, photographs and even bits of the famous Beatle mop.

But their big dream is that Paula - of Strathmore Road, Wimbledon Park - will persuade “old girl” Pattie to bring George to the next school prize giving.
