Louisa Lawson Memorial

A memorial seat is to be erected in the Domain as a tribute to Louisa Lawson, mother of Henry Lawson, and herself a poetess. The seat will be built on a site close to the statue of Henry Lawson, to a design by Mr. Peter Spooner, who won the senior students' competition arranged by Mr. A. H. Martin, in charge of the architecture department at the Technical College, Ultimo.

The memorial will be erected by the women's organising committee of the Official Labour Party. Mrs. McKell and Miss Stella Miles Franklin are patrons.

Mrs. Lawson edited and published "The Dawn," the first women's magazine published in Australia.
