Biographies

The Sydney University Women's Society was established in 1891 with the object of assisting "anyone requiring and deserving help". Among other activities, members of the Society worked at Lewisham Hospital, Newington asylum for aged women, the Woolloomooloo girls' club and the Harrington Street night school for girls at Millers Point. Today the re-named Sydney University Settlement Neighbourhood Centre works primarily with the Aboriginal community and other disadvantaged groups in Chippendale, Redfern, Darlington and Waterloo.

  • Settlement House was opened, with Sarah Evans becoming the first resident Settler
  • The Society was renamed the Sydney University Settlement.
  • The University Settlement purchased a property at Chippendale with the financial assistance of Dorette (Dorothea) Margarethe Maccallum and her
  • The Society was incorporated under the Sydney University Settlement Incorporation Act.
  • Under considerable financial pressure, the University Settlement became a neighbourhood centre.
