Summary

Burns graduated BA (Hons) in Psychology at the University of Sydney, where she was Secretary of the WUS Committee, was a post- graduate student and tutor at Monash University, and worked in the Department of External Affairs in Bonn and elsewhere before joining La Trobe University. She was ASCM representative on the Australian Australian committee of WUS 1965-1966, National International Officer for the Australia c. 1967-1969 and c. 1972-1976. WUS grew out of the European Student Relief Scheme in post-war Europe in 1920, launched at a meeting of the World Student Christian Federation in Switzerland. An attempt is being made to revive WUS, now moribund, by B.Dyster, University of New South Wales. (WUS was the World University Service.)
