Biographical/Historical note

Association of VUW Women. Exhibition Committee

Missing Title


This committee was associated with the Treaty of Waitangi sesquicentennial.

Individual organisations were asked to prepare posters, and the main organisers (Sheila Ahern and Beryl Hughes) collected and mounted a substantial number of exhibits.

The main collection of material was listed by Ahern and Hughes and was later used for their 1993 book Redbrick and bluestockings.
