The plaque on the Patrick Leahy obelisk commemorates Ellen Leahy, wife of Patrick Leahy, for her public and charitable work. 

Apart from her many business activities, Ellen was better known for the tireless efforts she devoted to charities, in particular the Mosman Red Cross and the Mater Hospital at North Sydney. When she began work for the latter cause the hospital consisted of a tiny cottage in a large garden. She was awarded an MBE for her efforts and continued this charity work until 1940 when she died at the grand old age of 77 years.
