Jenny Horsfield -The women of the Edgeworth David Family
Hornsby Library will be hosting a talk on the women of the Edgeworth David Family.
From educating a Fijian princess to knitting hundreds of woollen socks for servicemen during World War II, from providing medical assistance to Tuvalu islanders to offering Miles Franklin advice on her shortcomings as a writer, Lady Cara David, wife of Sir Edgeworth David, was arguably one of Hornsby Shire’s most influential women.
In 1907 David observed, "Whatever success I may have achieved in life, is die chiefly to my wife".
The talk will also focus upon Cara's children Margaret and Mary. Margaret was a community worker and politician and Mary an author.
Sessions will be held at Hornsby Library at the following times.
