19:30 - EVENT - The story of King Eddies - and ‘considerable travail’ : Friends of the Library Website | More Information
A great step forward for the women and babies of W.A. was the founding, over a hundred years ago, of the King Edward Memorial Hospital for Women. The need for a dedicated maternity hospital for poor women and a specialist women’s hospital was vigorously supported by leading women activists including Edith Cowan. Between 1916 and 2016 ‘King Eddies’ would grow to become the sophisticated modern hospital it is today, and one the most important and loved institutions in Perth.

Husband and wife team Jennie and Bevan Carter, who have both made a notable contribution to documenting the lives of Western Australians, will discuss their recent book on the history of King Edward Memorial Hospital.

In their talk ‘Considerable travail’ - 100 years of WA’s premier women’s hospital, they will track the history and evolution of KEMH, explore the crucial importance of activist women in its establishment as a training hospital, briefly look at the role it played as part of the University of Western Australia’s Medical School, and conclude with an examination of the greater community involvement in its services from the late 20th century. On the way they will include some of the fascinating stories of those who shaped King Eddie’s into the institution it is today.

Partners in Historical Research and Publication services, Jennie and Bevan are the authors, individually and together, of several books on aspects of West Australian history including Settlement to City: a history of the Armidale district and its people and most recently King Eddie’s: a history of Western Australia’s premier women’s hospital 1916-2016 published by the KEMH Alumni.

Jennie, who has qualifications in history and archives management, became archives manager at the Battye Library of West Australian History in 1998, then Library Director from 2005 to 2007. She retired from the State Library in 2008. Bevan, with Science and Education degrees and qualifications in Computing, has taught at TAFE and high schools and was mayor of Bassendean from 1997 to 2001 and from 2003 to 2005 President of the WA Genealogical Society. In retirement his interest is in environmental, family and local history and he has published several works. RSVP: Kathryn Maingard – kathryn.maingard@uwa.edu.au or 08 6488 2356
