Description

Interviews concerning Women's Work and the Second World War

Mary Miller was born in Yorketown, South Australia and spent her childhood on Yorke Peninsula. Her work in munitions factories during the Second World War led to her involvement as an organiser in the iron workers' union and a life-long commitment to the labour movement. In the mid-1950s she qualified as a primary school teacher and became active in child welfare and Aboriginal education as well. She speaks about a range of organisations and activities including the United Trades and Labor Council, the Forty Hour Week Committee, the Australian Peace Committee, Australian Labour Party, Communist Party of Australia, Adelaide New Theatre, Adelaide Film Society, the Australian Workers' Union, the Aborigines Advancement League, Aboriginal Progress Association, and the Aboriginal Education Foundation.

Recorded on 23 January 1984 and 5 & 18 June 1986
