Australian Red Cross Victoria (1914 - )
Description

The Archive & Heritage Collection of the Australian Red Cross, Victoria holds a wide range of records and artifacts relating to the organization in Victoria - in line with its Mission -
to ensure that items and records that document the history of the Australian Red Cross in Victoria are retained, kept securely and made accessible for research.
The Collection includes Australian Red Cross publications, books of news-clippings from 1915-1996, minutes of meetings (Divisional, Regional and special purpose committees to regional and rural branches), annual reports, a range of documents, reports & letters, some special collections (photograph albums, scrap books) of prominent people and collections of miscellaneous papers and ephemera. Two traveling exhibitions, 'Being There' (highlighting the activities in different eras) and 'Red Cross Remembers WW2' have been mounted and toured many regional areas of the State.

A project to record the location of Australian Red Cross Victoria Branch records retained locally or held in other repositories was begun in early 2004.
