Free

Appointed Superintendent of the Sydney Infirmary and Dispensary, Lucy Osburn, along with five other nursing sisters, arrived in Sydney on 5 March 1868. Osburn’s appointment was no coincidence – it followed Henry Parkes’ appeal to Florence Nightingale for more trained nurses to be sent to the colony to reform the established nursing methods. To mark the 150th anniversary of Lucy Osburn’s arrival in Sydney, Elinor Wrobel OAM will present a special lecture about Osburn’s life.

About the speaker: Elinor Wrobel OAM is the curator of the Lucy Osburn-Nightingale Foundation Museum at Sydney Hospital. Elinor established this museum in 2001, coinciding with the Centenary of Federation. Elinor is well known for her service to the arts, particularly as a benefactor and supporter of art institutions, and to the community through the development of the Lucy Osburn-Nightingale Foundation Museum.
