Dame Louise McIlroy was a Fellow of the RCOG from its inception in 1929 and a prominent member of the early College council. Dame Louise was an important figure in the pre-war emergency discussions of the late 1930s about the care and management of children and pregnant women. The records reproduced here from the RCOG Archive record in detail the discussions in which she was involved, and include a letter to the Professor William Fletcher Shaw, Honorary Secretary dated 3 November 1938 and a report of a meeting attended by her, October 1938.
