90th birth­day joy for Lady Jean

Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

PEP­PER­MINT Grove’s Lady Jean BrodieHall cel­e­brated her 90th birth­day with about 30 friends at her home this month.

The found­ing pa­tron of the Univer­sity of WA’s Cen­te­nary Trust For Women is also a prom­i­nent West Aus­tralian land­scape ar­chi­tect.

CTW re­cently an­nounced it would es­tab­lish a schol­ar­ship in hon­our of Lady Jean for stu­dents study­ing ar­chi­tec­ture, en­vi­ron­men­tal en­gi­neer­ing or land­scape ar­chi­tec­ture.

In 1970, UWA em­ployed Lady Jean to re­port on the changes to pedes­trian and ve­hi­cle move­ment caused by a re­cently com­pleted un­der­pass from the north of the cam­pus.

Four years later, she was ap­pointed the inau­gu­ral Univer­sity Land­scape Ar­chi­tect, re­spon­si­ble for the plan­ning, de­sign and main­te­nance of the Crawley cam­pus.
