Summary Biography of Vera Deakin, daughter of Prime Minister Alfred Deakin and a spirited humanitarian. Her varied welfare work (begun during World War 1) and service to the Red Cross were honoured during her lifetime but later largely forgotten. Author Carole Woods captures a significant figure in Australian history, exploring Vera's activism within the defining events of the 20th century and revealing a woman who defied society's expectations in order to help those in need
