Description

Manuscript, 4 cm. Battye library, records of the Edith Cowan memorial committee, which was set up to memorialise Edith Cowan, Australia's first woman parliamentarian. The question of a memorial to Edith Cowan was first raised at the monthly meeting of the Western Australian National Council of Women in August 1932, where it was decided to call a public meeting. The public meeting held on 23 September 1932 moved for the formation of a committee to decide on the form of a memorial. After much controversy, the clock tower at the entrance to Kings Park was unveiled in 1934.
