Event description

Description

In 1937 the Sisters of St John of God were engaged by the State to nurse and care for victims of the Big Sick. Dr Charmaine Robson examines their work, in the largest leprosarium in Australia, with particular focus on the ways they negotiated their twin roles as missionaries and government appointees.
