Abstract/Summary Elizabeth Usher was born in 1911 in Victoria. Her family moved to Queensland where she trained as a teacher. Following four years in the WAAAF during the Second World War, she trained at the College of Speech Therapists, graduating in 1948. She was the first Queenslander to become a Speech Therapist, eventually convincing the University of Queensland to introduce a Diploma in Speech Therapy in 1962. The program was upgraded to Degree status and Mrs. Usher appointed a full time lecturer. She retired in 1977 and was appointed to the Order of Australia in 1990. This image shows Elizabeth Usher conducting a speech therapy class with children.
