Next to the Festival Centre in Adelaide, by the banks of the Torrens River, is a monument to Doris May Graham (1912-2004). She was a South Australian woman who did much to better the relations between white Australians and Indigenous Australians. She and he husband Cecil Wallace Graham wrote "As we’ve known it: 1911 to the present", published by the Aboriginal Studies and Teacher Education Unit (ASTEC), Underdale, in 1987. It is an Autobiographical account of life at the Point Pearce Mission.
I could not find much else relating to Doris May Graham, except the information on the memorial, which stands as a cenotaph to her memory. Her 15 children I am sure would be proud of her and may have had something to do with the erection of this memorial.
