Bage, Ethel Mary (1884–1943)

from Age (Melbourne)

After an illness of many months, Miss Ethel Mary Bage died early yesterday morning at her home in Wellington-street, Kew. Miss Bage, who was the second daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. Edward Bage, was a graduate of the Melbourne University, and was the first president of the Australian Women Graduates' Association. Later she held office as honorary treasurer, a role she also filled for the Victorian Women Graduates' Association. She was also a council member of the University Women's College. Since the outbreak of war Miss Bage had been an active worker for the University women's patriotic fund, and she organised its successful waste products section. Up to some seven years ago she ran the Alice Anderson motor service, for many years the only garage and motor school to be owned and managed by a woman.
