About this object

Letter in which Miss Hazel Allison gives a brief history of her time with the Salvation Army with a photograph enclosed.

Miss Allison went to Ratanui School. Because her home at Puerua was four miles from the school, she lived with her grandparents Mr and Mrs Hugh McKechnie who had a sawmill at Ratanui.

Miss Allison joined the Salvation Army in Riverton in about 1919 and later trained as a midwife. During her career, she was in charge of a maternity home in Dunedin and then Auckland where the Salvation Army cared for unmarried mothers and their babies.

In 1950 Miss Allison became Women's Social Secretary in charge of the Salvation Army network of institutions and worked throughout New Zealand.
