Grace Campbell was born in 1905 and lived most of her life in Mascot. She was extremely musical – a pianist and a soprano who regularly organised concerts and recitals in many different locations. Newspapers mention many such concerts during the 1920s, 1930 and 1940s. Often these were fundraising occasions for causes such as churches, charities and hospitals.
She began working for Mascot Municipal Council (later amalgamated into Botany Council) in October 1941 as a typist and remained with Council as a clerk until 1972. She also served as the Minute Secretary at Council meetings for many years. She was well-known and respected in the local community and was an active member of many groups. Grace was clearly a key figure in the local community.
