AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'In this biographical profile of Augustine Soubeiran, the author relies heavily on Fifi Hawthorn's 1972 book on Kambala Girls' School. The article reflects the state of knowledge of Mademoiselle Soubeiran's life at that stage. It discusses her background, her arrival in Sydney in the 1880s, her friendhsip with Louisa Gurney and her career as co-principal of Kambala. The second part of the article is devoted to Mademoiselle Soubeiran's participation in the work of the French-Australian League of Help during the First World War.' (Editor's abstract)
