Medical women’s obituaries

By | From the Collections

A useful new biographical resource has been added to the catalogue of the archives of the Medical Women’s Federation (SA/MWF).

Thanks to the painstaking work of Emma Milliken, an index to the obituaries of women doctors which appeared in the various differently entitled incarnations of its Newsletter/Quarterly Review/Journal has been added to the ‘Notes’ field of the collection level description of SA/MWF.

To find it, go to A&M Catalogue at Search Interface input SA/MWF into Reference field and Collection into Level field > click on the blue numeral in the lefthand column of hitlist to reach detailed entry and then scroll down.

The index can be browsed there: or individual names can be searched via the Any Text field of the catalogue. Though please note that it will only provide references to the relevant volumes, not access to the actual obituaries.
