Dates of existence

1956 -


The inaugual meeting of the Ladies' Drawing Room in 1956 is referred to as a meeting of the Wives of Members of University House. At that meeting it was decided that both wives of Members and women who were Members of University House in their own right would be allowed to use the Drawing Room for social functions. Committee members were initially elected to represent the four Research Schools of the University and the Administration based on their husbands' employment and the Steward was an ex officio member. Membership expanded as new Schools were established including the School of General Studies after the incorporation of the Canberra University College in 1960. Morning teas and luncheons including a speaker on topics of general interest were organised. In the 1980s a Play Reading Group also met.
