    Notes 
    • Dedication of Hospital Ward. Tribute to late Mrs. Fred Tatham.
      Sincere tributes to the late Mrs Fred Tatham, a former president, and afterward secretary for many years, of the Melbourne District Nursing Society and After-care Hospital, were paid by speakers at a gathering at the institution yesterday to dedicate a ward in her memory. The dedication ceremony was performed by Bishop Booth, and Lady Huntingfield designated the ward as the "Constance Maud Tatham Ward". "I had the privilege of knowing the late Mrs Tatham," Lady Huntingfield said, "and I am able to realise what she was and what she meant to this hospital. Her spirit of happy service and unselfishness did a great deal to inspire that wonderfully happy atmosphere one feels here." Lady Huntingfield was accompanied by the Hon Sara Vanneck.
      The president of the society (Mrs G G Henderson) moved the following motion which was seconded by Major-General Tivey.
      "That this assemblage of fellow workers and close friends desires to place on record its deep regret at the death of Mrs Tatham and its sincere appreciation of the valuable service rendered by her as honorary secretary, president and secretary to the Melbourne District Nursing Society. Her influence, combined with her unfailing sympathy,
      courtesy and tact, is a great loss to the society and a personal loss to all who were associated with her. In work and in leisure Mrs Tatham was a gentlewoman in the truest sense, and in using the word this assemblage does so to express all that it admires and respects in a fellow-woman."
      The senior vice-president (Mrs M M Phillips) supported the motion.
      On behalf of Mrs Tatham's relatives, and as a personal friend, Mr W H J Campbell expressed appreciation of the society's wish to dedicate a ward to her memory.
      A brass nameplate for the ward was received from Lady Isaacs who apologised for her unavoidable absence.
      The ward, where the ceremony took place, is wide and airy, with pale green tinted walls, and each bed is covered with a white linen counterpane embroidered with the initials C.M.T. in green. [Melbourne Argus, 26 Mar 1935]
