- Occupation Councillor
Beryl Humble was a local councillor in Maitland for more than two decades from 1974-1997. At some point during this time she held the post of Deputy Mayor. The Beryl Humble Sporting Complex at Tenambit was named in her honour. In 1978, as a Liberal Party candidate, she failed to gain election to the New South Wales Legislative Assembly seat of Waratah. That was the only time she ran for Parliament.
