Description

Adelaide Lyceum Club Oral History

Margaret Hodge was born in Adelaide in 1918, subsequently moving to a Western Australian jarrah timber camp where her father was a teacher in a two roomed school. After his death when she was nine, Margaret and her mother returned to Adelaide to live with relatives. She attended Presbyterian Girls' School (now Seymour College) on scholarship, being particularly influenced by two of her teachers - in English and current affairs. On leaving school she taught at Wilderness School. She married Scott Hodge in 1940, and had four children with him, including one who was born with spina bifida. She speaks about the problems of coping with a handicapped child, and her involvement in raising public awareness of people with disabilities. Margaret joined the Lyceum Club in 1971 and has served in a number of official capacities over the years.
