Crow, Ruth (1988) A tribute to Doris McRae, 1893 to 1988 : a life dedicated to peace and social justice. unpublished. (Unpublished)


When Doris McRae died in her 96th year on October 9th this year, a friend, Margaret McGarvin Rea, paid the following Tribute to her in the columns of the Age. "Doris McRae was a woman who knew peace and human rights could be achieved throughout the world. She never ceased to play her part. She will be greatly missed." When Doris was ninety she wrote some notes about her early childhood, her training as a teacher, her life as a secondary teacher during the first half of this century and her participation in community movements for peace and for a better life for women. These notes have been supplemented by tapes of talks I had with Doris during 1983.
