Vera Scantlebury Brown, commonly known as Dr Vera, was appointed the first Director of Infant Welfare for the Victorian Department of Health in 1926. She remained dedicated to this position until her death. The position was only part-time due to her marriage, a custom of the time when it was considered that married women did not need to work outside the home. Vera Santlebury Brown was honoured with her appointment as an Officer of the Order of the British Empire on 9 June 1938 for her work in the fields of infant and maternal welfare.

Vera Scantlebury, the daughter of George James and Catherine Millington (née Baynes) Scantlebury, was educated at Toorak College before entering medical school at the University of Melbourne. She graduated Bachelor of Medicine (MB) in 1914 and became resident medical officer at the Melbourne Hospital. Dr Vera then moved to the Children's Hospital in 1915, where she was appointed senior medical officer before leaving for England in 1917. In England she was attached to the Endell Street Military Hospital.

Dr Vera returned to Victoria in 1919 and worked in a variety of honorary positions including: honorary anaesthetist at the Women's Hospital (1920-1922), honorary clinical assistant at the Children's Hospital (1920-1924), Honorary physician and surgeon at the Queen Victoria Hospital (1920-1926) and medical inspector Church of England Girls' Grammar School (1920-1946). Dr Vera also was associated with the Victorian Baby Health Centres Association and the Free Kindergarten Union of Victoria. In 1921, Dr Vera was appointed part-time medical officer in charge of the city baby health centres and in 1924 she was became a doctor of medicine. In 1925, together with Dr Henrietta Main, she was sent by the Victorian Government to conduct a survey of the welfare of women and children in New Zealand and Victoria. Their report led to the establishment of the Infant Welfare Division in the Department of Public Health.

Dr Vera married University of Melbourne lecturer (later associate professor) Dr Edward Byam Brown on 18 September 1926, and they had two children. A month following her marriage she accepted the appointment of part-time director of the newly formed Infant Welfare Division. She remained in this position until her death. In 1937, following Dr Vera's report on infant welfare for the National Health and Research Council, the Commonwealth Government allocated 100,000 pounds for the benefit of pre-school children, from the Coronation Commemoration Grant. newspaper reported on 15 July 1946, in an article 'Death of Dr Vera Scantlebury Brown' 'In 1938 the Australian Association of Pre-School Child Development was established, together with the Lady Gowrie Child Centres. The splendid preventive work carried out at these centres in all states was largely the result of Dr Scantlebury Brown's efforts. She received an OBE in 1938 in recognition of her distinguished work in preventive medicine. 'In 1944 pre-school activities including payment of subsidies to free kindergartens were also placed under her supervision, and her vision and enthusiasm achieved a further success in 1945, when the State Government decided to bring under the Health Department the care of expectant mothers and all children to six years of age.'

Vera Scantlebury Brown died on 14 July 1946, after a long battle with cancer. She is buried in the Cheltenham cemetery.

  20. Maternal and Child Health Service (Infant Welfare) Photographic Collection
    [1927 - 1995]
    Series: Public Record Office Victoria, Victorian Archives Centre
    The collection has been separated into three parts, based on format: P1 - framed photographs This consignment consists of photographs that were displayed as part of the Jubilee Conference on Maternal and Child Health in 1976 and then selected to be framed and displayed for the 75th Jubilee, held in 2001. Photographs not considered suitable for framing at the time can be found in the P2 consignment. The photographs date from 1927 to the mid 1940s, and document various aspects of the Infant Welfare Service. Subject matter includes the rural Infant Welfare Circuit, the Better Farming Train in rural Victoria and mothers with their children in front of the Infant Welfare van. P2 - Large unframed mounted photographs This consignment consists of 30 mounted unframed photographs that depict aspects of the service and departmental responsibilities dating from the 1940s to the 1980s. These include photographs of the department office and officers (1946), the infant welfare vans (internal and external), babies' homes (including mothercraft nurses), a dental and pre-natal clinic, a series of family shots taken in the 1950s and service activities taken in 1987. Along with the contents of the P1 consignment, these photographs would have been displayed at the Jubilee Conference on Maternal and Child Health in 1976. P3 - Individual Prints and Slides This consignment consists of individual photographs of various sizes, including 106 slides and the contents of 269 individual envelopes. Subject matter includes maternal and child health centres (infant welfare), centre-based services including families and nurses, rural outreach services, official opening of centres with various officers of the Department and mothers group activities. The dates range from 1938 to 1995. Notes on the back of some prints indicate that they may have been published in annual reports.

  21. Maternal and Child Health Services (Infant Welfare) Publications and Resources
    [c. 1930 - 2009]
    Series: Public Record Office Victoria, Victorian Archives Centre
    P1 - Printed Parent Information This consignment consists of leaflets, pamphlets and booklets on a range of subjects related to health and development, nutrition, parenting education and pregnancy. The dates of publication range from 1936 to 2001. The 'Jubilee Conference on Maternal and Child Health' paper located in the P2 consignment of this series refers to leaflets on 'general management' being sent out monthly as part of the Infant Welfare section's Correspondence Service. Content from this consignment could be copies of some of this material. Some of the leaflets contain a Government printer's number such as 4907/49. The second number refers to the year of printing - some leaflets were revised and printed at later dates. P2 - Various Publications This consignment includes a range of publications and resource material such as a text book/guide, a copy of a 50th Jubilee conference paper, Maternal and Child Health program standards, standards of professional practice and examples of 'Your Child's Personal Health Record' dating from 1979 to the late 1990s. The Personal Health Records were distributed to parents on enrolment in the Maternal and Child Health (Infant Welfare) Service. From the late 1990's a new comprehensive Child Health Record was introduced with more information, particularly about child development. They were distributed on discharge from hospital and there are samples from 2001-2008. The 2008 edition was published by the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development as part of a machinery of Government Change. P3 - Framed Posters This consignment consists of four large framed posters designed for display in infant welfare centres. The posters provided advice for parents on subjects such as vision and care of the eyes, sleeping and the benefits of night air, and preparing for school. It's possible that they were developed in the 1940s for the newly created school nursing service, when vision and hearing screening of children was introduced (school nurses worked in schools from 1913 to the 1940s as part of the school medical service).

    [1927 - 1995]
    Series: Public Record Office Victoria, Victorian Archives Centre
    P1- This consignment consists of annual reports of the Director of the Infant Welfare Branch and data reports of the Maternal and Child Health Service (Infant Welfare). The reports provide an official record of the service and its operation between 1927 and 1948. They appear to be mostly working drafts of the Director of Infant Welfare and are typed and printed copies with handwritten comments and amendments. There are also speech notes and handwritten data reports. There are multiple copies of some reports (possibly from various stages of drafting). The data reports provide information about birth notifications, numbers of children enrolled in the Service, numbers of children requiring medical attention, breast feeding and numbers of pregnant women attending the centres. The annual reports provided some analysis of the data and reports on the status of the service in Victoria. Some of the earlier reports were included in the Commission of Public Health Report (to Government). The data and analysis would also have been used to provide advice to Government Ministers and to inform policy directions and service quality improvement.
