Abstract/Summary Anna Frederika (Freda) Bage, 1883-1970, was born at St Kilda, Victoria. A forerunner of women in public life in Queensland, Freda Bage was an unpretentious person despite her strong personality. Her early education included time spent at the University of Melbourne, and Kings College, London prior to being appointed lecturer in charge of biology at the University of Queensland in 1913. She became the first principal of The Women's College within that university on 8 February 1914. Aside from professional responsibilities she also took part in many important volunteer activities. Her contributions were recognised when she was appointed O.B.E. in 1941, and conferred with an honorary doctorate of laws from the Univeristy of Queensland on 26 April 1951. She died in Brisbane on 23 October 1970. [Taken from the Australian Dictionary of Biography on 22 September 2015]
