Abstract/Summary From Lunchroom to Boardroom was an oral history project by historian Therese Collie and visual artist Judith Hewitson, supported by the Oral History Association of Queensland, the Union of Australian Women and the Trades and Labour Council. The objective of the project was to record the stories of a wide variety of women who participated in the Queensland Labor Movement from the 1930s though to the 1970s. Throughout 1991, sixteen interviews were conducted with prominent activists such as Connie Healy, Susan Dickson and Marie Crisp. Connie Healy was a member of the Australian Communist Party, the Clerks Union and an activist for Women’s rights in the work place. Susan Dickson was a member of the Teachers Union and Communist Party in Britain. She left the Communist Party for the Labor Party and worked with aboriginal children, the prisoners’ aid society and campaigned for greater numbers of women in local politics. Marie Crisp worked in the metal trades during World War II, joined the Vehicle Builders Union and Miscellaneous Workers Union, and was a member of the Union of Australian Women. She was a lifelong campaigner for the rights of women workers and aboriginal people. The recordings of interviews with these remarkable women were entrusted to the Library’s Audio Visual Service, then managed by Gulcin Cribb, at the University of Queensland Library. More recently the collection has been moved to the safety of the University of Queensland's Fryer Library, where it remains to this day.
