The Board of Studies was formed by a resolution of the Management Committee of Deaconess House on 8 August 1974 . The purpose of the board was to prepare a submission for the Australian College of Theology for a Diploma of Ministry. The Board comprised Rev S. Giltrap (Chairman), Deaconesses M. Andrews, J. Lawrence and M. Rodgers, Mrs I. Hall and Rev. G. Glassock. The members met Dr G.B. Knox and Dr W. Dumbrell to discuss matters that arose in conjunction with Mooore College.

Writings of Mary Andrews

  • AU AU-MTC 093/3
  • Serie
  • 1930-1996

This series contains material written by Mary Andrews, including both handwritten and printed materials but excluding her diaries (see Series 2), notes and correspondence pertaining to her biography "Going it Alone" and other autobiographical material (see series ??), correspondence and draft correspondence (series 4), and personal newsletters (series 5-6).
The series includes first drafts of articles and addresses, completed short publications, fragmentary notes (names and contact details etc.), notes on sermons and addresses she had attended, annotated texts of varying length, and drafts of Deaconess House monthly reports.
The content of this series was separated in part from Mary's collection of personal letters received (see Series 1), and was otherwise collected piecemeal from miscellaneous unsorted paperwork distributed haphazardly throughout the collection. It is unknown if there was any original intended order to these latter papers (though it seems unlikely) or if the arrangement was an arbitrary decision by Archives Consultant Debra Leigo, who supervised the re-boxing of the collection in 2011.

  • such conditions of life as will assure to every child an opportunity for full and free development; and to form a link with National Councils of Women in other countries through the National Council of Women of Australia and the International Council of Women.
    Members of the Council included both organisations committed to improving the status of women and their families and individual members.
    Both at the state and federal levels there were standing Committee for many issues relating to women including the arts, children and families, education, environment, health, housing, international relations and peace, laws and suffrage, the media, migration, social welfare and employment
    Councils were established in other states of Australia and in 1931 the National Council of Women of Australia was established and the state organisations were affiliated with it. The NCWA is affiliated with the International Council of Women. The National Council of Women of Australia was incorporated on 28 November 1988. Triennial Conferences were held for some years. There are full records of the Conference for 1973-76.
    The Deaconess Institute was a member of the Council and Mary Andrews was associated with the Council since 1976 And served on the Executive at least in the following years 1976-7, 1982, 1984, 1987 and 1991.

Records of the Women's World Day of Prayer

  • AU AU-MTC 093/11
  • Serie
  • 1966-1996

The Women's World Day of Prayer originated in the US after the Civil War, starting in 1887 as a day of prayer for home missions and taking its approximate modern form in 1920. Traditionally held on the first Friday in March, the Day proper consists of a worldwide day of ecumenical affirmation and prayer along with the conduction of specially prepared services (these services were often developed by a single national committee for use worldwide).
National and regional committees were responsible for the preparation and distribution of WWDoP materials. Mary Andrews served as National Liaison Officer from 1978 to 1984(approx.) and was designated as Regional Representative on the International Executive from 1982. She was a member of the NSW state committee from 1977 (or earlier) untill her death. She was also Secretary of the National Executive Committee circa 1985. The 1986 World Day of Prayer was held in Australia, and this series includes some preparatory materials.

Records of missionary organisations with which Mary Andrews was associated

  • AU AU-MTC 093/13
  • Serie
  • 1946-1996

This series contains correspondence, meeting minutes, and other records relating to the three missionary organisations with which Mary Andrews was most closely connected: The Church Missionary Society of Australia (CMS), CMS-UK, and the South American Missionary Service (SAMS).Mary Andrews was a missionary with CMS from 1938-1951, working primarily in
China but with a short role in India. She had a secondment agreement of sorts with CMS-UK, with which she was in regular contact while in the field. Following her return to Australia, she made inquiries with CMS-UK regarding the possibility of missionary work with them in South-East Asia. After this failed to eventuate, she remained in casual correspondence with staff at CMS-UK for some time. In addition to the paper records in this series there are two cassette recordings viz: CMS Prayer Weekend 1981 (Rev R.A. Cole) and CMS Summer School 1982 Dr and Mrs Coleman. These may be located in Series 29/4.
Due to her position as Principal of Deaconess House (and missionary experience), Mary was part of the CMS Candidates Committee, Training Committee, and General Committee. As a number of single female missionaries and missionary wives were trained at Deaconess House, Mary was responsible for providing candidate evaluation reports and occasionally conducted interviews with prospective missionaries (including missionary couples) on behalf of the Candidates Committee. She also regularly attended meetings of the above and made a number of recommendations on training policy. Mary ceased being a member of the Candidates Committee in 1976, following her retirement. She then resigned from the General Committee in 1987. Return correspondence suggests that she was dissatisfied with what she perceived as the narrow roles that CMS would allow female missionaries to fill. SAMS was founded in 1844 as a missionary society focused on evangelising Latin America. Mary Andrews served on their Candidates Committee and NSW General Committee from 1975 (at the latest; possibly as early as 1965) until her death in 1996. She also engaged in friendly correspondence with a number of SAMS missionaries and home staff.

Biographical source material

  • AU AU-MTC 093/14
  • Serie
  • 1951-1996

The series comprises original documents and copies of material possibly gathered for Mary Andrew's planned autobiography that was never published, the partial biography written by Margaret Yarwood Lamb and may be used for future biographical purposes. In addition to official documentation such as birth certificate, visas, passports, the series includes charitable donations, family history, school reunion, details of travels, response to her Member of the Order of Australia award.
A note concerning Item 31 of this series. It appears that soon after returning to Australia from Missionary service Mary Andrews commenced preparing lists with brief descriptions of the major events and achievements in her life including overseas travel and lists of positions held were appended. . These seems to have been updated regularly although the date of composition is not recorded prior to 1979. From March 1979 they were known as Bio Data. It is assumed that these were prepared for occasions when background information was required and as source material for biographers and journalists..
Some routine material has been culled. Some however has been retained (such as travel documents) as this has been used to date some of Mary's writings.
The routine material (tickets, boarding passes, drafts have been removed from the travel records.

Formal letters received

  • AU AU-MTC 093/17
  • Serie
  • 1952-1996

These letters and invitations are from the Archbishop and other Diocesan officials, the Governor and NSW Government and sundry other correspondents.
The letters include invitations to meetings and State and Diocesan social functions, acknowledgements of hospitality. Responses to letters she had sent, opinions that she made known, comments she had made and articles submitted for publication
Many letters and invitations were sent in regard to Ms Andrews capacities as Principal of Deaconess House and Head Deaconess others because she was a well-known personality.
These letters contrast with personal letters received in that the items are matters of business and there is no evidence of a personal relationship between the contributors although some of the correspondents were well known to Mary.
