SYNOPSIS: Dame Mabel Brookes' life was one that warrants recognition despite her fame as the wife of famous Australian tennis player, Sir Norman Brookes. She was the daughter of a prominent Melbourne lawyer and her childhood was spent mainly in the company of Establishment Families. However, her charity work and her political and war activities showed her to be a remarkable woman. Her friendships with many of the world's famous people makes this memoir a fascinating one. Mabel Brookes's greatest contribution was as president (1923-70) of the Queen Victoria Hospital, staffed by women for women. She passed away in 1975, aged 85 years. Quantity Available: 1.
