Summary

Agnes Good was acknowledged for her work in Adelaide for the Red Cross Society through her appointment as Officer of the Order of the British Empire on 19 October 1920. Born and educated in England, and married there to Dr J E Good, she arrived in Adelaide before World War I and was an early member of the Australian Red Cross Society, South Australian Division, having joined it in August 1914. She became a member of the Division Council in 1917. Good had been a medical student before her marriage. She organised fund raising activities during the war and continued to work for the Red Cross Society afterwards. Her contribution was rewarded with life membership. Her other community interests included chairmanship of the Combined Charitable Organisations and of the Children's Hospital Red Cross Canteen in 1927. She also assumed the role of official visitor to various hospitals in Adelaide.
