Women's Memorial Fund

Administrative / Biographical History

This paper was found inside a book donated to the Gower Bird Hospital. It was bought by Ros Castell and donated to AMC/WAW.

It was decided at a gathering in Aberystwyth on 23 May 1923 'that the Women of Wales should approach the Women of America and tell them frankly of their concern for the future of civilisation'. The Memorial should emphasise 'the conviction felt by us all that if America in her own good time should again take her place at the side of the British Commonwealth her action would be decisive. If the vacant chair in the Council of the League of Nations could be filled by America the world would be saved for evermore from international bloodshed.'
