Lillian CooperPrint Page
A window and altar commemorates the medical practitioner Lillian Cooper.
Lillian came to Brisbane in May 1891 and in June became the first female doctor registered in Queensland. Induced to work for an alcoholic doctor, she finally secured a cancellation of her contract and was boycotted professionally for two years. She was allowed to join the Medical Society of Queensland in 1893, and later became an honorary in the Hospital for Sick Children and the Lady Lamington Hospital for Women. In 1905 she became associated with the Mater Misericordiae Hospital and stayed with it for the rest of her life.
She was awarded Serbian Order of St Sava for her work as a surgeon during World War One, with a Scottish Women`s Hospital unit on the Macedonian campaign where the Serbs and the French, were in conflict with Austrian troops.
