    Thank you. I've just caught up with this. What was her name? She is likely to be in the IHC collection of papers and correspondence in the Turnbull Library. There are also photos of some of the women activists. That first committee was on very good terms with Peter Fraser and other politicians. After Peter Fraser lost the 1949 election he shifted in with his step daughter-in-law Rini, her husband (his step son) and her daughter Alice in Ranui Crescent in Khandallah, while the Anyons lived in the adjoining Everest Street. The Anyons are remembered because they ran that first committee and secretary Margaret Anyon was a very prolific writer and that history has survived. But there are also numerous names in the records.

    I have just written a biography of JB Munro who was a long time head of IHC and included a bit more of the history and context.

    Even more toxic the shame of disability and difference and the prejudice against children and families.

    Thanks for posting this Russell, and for your ongoing support of the Access blog site. Hopefully the names Margaret and Hal (Harold) Anyon, and their battles for inclusion of all children, will soon better known as a result of the new focus on teaching our NZ history.

    There are some groups and people who are constantly criticising the Royal Commission. I would suggest people critique why they might want to undermine it or want it to fail or close.

  • Access: Reviewing Funded Family Care and…,

    There could be some families who already have some services from providers but some hours of payment for other times would be appreciated. I also hope that if it does prove popular that more funding is provided in future Budgets. The evaluation of Mana Whaikaha (the new NASC-less person-centred system in the MidCentral area which is proving very popular) is also due next year. I would hope that all these things are considered in a new focus on fairer and more consistent disability support in the next parliamentary term.
