Description

This item is a list of names and addresses of women to whom letters were sent soliciting donations for the Margaret Ogg Memorial Fund. In the left hand margin are noted sums donated by the woman whose name appears on the right, or other notes, such as 'deceased', explaining a non-donation. The Fund was established at the Jubilee Celebration of the League to recognise Margaret Ogg's outstanding service. Money raised was used to assist women seeking election at local, state or federal level, and successful candidates were to repay the donation to benefit other women. Candidates assisted by this fund included Senator Annabelle Rankin, Senator Kathy Martin, Mrs Petronel White and Mrs Warner (the latter two ladies to Council).
