Description

Adelaide Lyceum Club Oral History

Peg Gooden was born in 1900. Her father died when she was young so she and her mother lived with Peg's grandparents in North Adelaide. She went to St Peter's Girls' School. In 1923 she married Harvey Lawton and they lived at Lower Mitcham and joined St Columba's Church in Hawthorn. Harvey Lawton died in 1930 and Peg remarried Lance Gooden in 1935. During World War II Peg joined the Comforts Fund committee and worked on the sock table. Music played a large part in Peg's life and she played at Lyceum Club lunches. She was also an active member of the Bowden Kindergarten Committee which helped underprivileged children.
