Description: The story of Mary Lily Walker and the important changes she made to society Mary Lily Walker is one of Dundee's forgotten heroines and 2013 marks one hundred years since her death. She founded Scotland's first Infant Health Service and first Nursing Mothers Restaurant. The community centre that she established, Grey Lodge Settlement, still serves families living in the city. And her name has been linked with Dundee's housing center: the Lily Walker Centre. Yet her commitment to Dundee, and the many achievements that came from that, have been forgotten over time. The anniversary of her death marks the perfect time to renew her memory. This book uncovers her story and the important changes she made to society.
