More importantly, my late grandmother, Pat Sorby, was a very popular staff member and nurse, living in the unit in A block for many years in the 1970s. She established “The Cottage” – a women’s refuge, up near the Staff Centre. A very determined woman dedicated to human rights. Her diary tells of meetings at the ANU regarding homosexual law reform, abortions, the student union etc. I understand she was well known and respected at B&G and ANU.
