As part of its 150th year celebrations, The Ladies' College has been exploring and digitising its archive, a rich source of social history. This coincided with The National Archives at Kew in London, in partnership with the British Association for Local History, holding a competition called “20sStreets” to explore local life through the census a century ago.
Bronwyn Henderson, Head of History, wrote an entry for the competition about Old Girl Amelia Le Pelley, making the case that she should be commemorated as Guernsey’s first female doctor. In the 1920s, Amelia was an experienced doctor practicing in Nottingham but her training as a scientist started at the Ladies’ College in the 1880s. The article, published now online, was awarded the runner-up place in the competition, and the prize is the expert talk about aspects of local history researched at Kew especially for this event.
On Monday 3 July from 6pm-8pm we are holding an event to mark this.
