Discover the fascinating life story of Minnie Evelyn Windemer, Matron of the Freemasons’ War Hospital from 1916 to 1919. Challenging family circumstances led her to forge her own path and enter nursing, one of the few respectable careers for women by the late 19th century.
At the outbreak of World War I, many wives and daughters joined the workplace for the first time, replacing men who were fighting in Europe's trenches.
Introduced by Jane Nielsen, Interpretation Manager at Museum of Freemasonry, join Susan Snell, Archivist and Records Manager as she describes how Minnie negotiated her role and earned respect from patients, nurses, doctors and freemasons on the home front.
The talk will take place via Zoom on Monday 13 July at 19:30. It will last around 45 minutes.
