Description

Broadcast 17 August 1969. 20 minutes.
The opening announcement for this broadcast includes the following information: 'We have as our guest a lady who has long been a protagonist of women's interests in South Australia, and who has herself set an example of how diversified those interests can be in personal life. Miss May Mills was born at Millbrae in South Australia's Native Valley, the daughter of farming parents, and after learning and practising the tasks of running a farm, she turned to teaching as a career, and served in both primary and secondary schools, in country and city; but perhaps she is best remembered for her many years at Unley High School. She retired from teaching in 1960, but has long been an active member of the National Council of Women; was one of the founders of the South Australian Film and Television Council, is past President of the Royal Commonwealth Society, is President of the South Australian Women's Cricket Association, and she was the L.C.L. candidate for Edwardstown in 1961 State elections.'
