Memorial for Elsie Knocker and Mairi Chisholm

Dr. Diane Atkinson and Stefaan Vandenbussche have proposed a memorial be built in Pervyse (or Pervijze) in Belgium to commemorate the extraordinary work of Elsie Knocker and Mairi Chisholm. (For more on Elsie Knocker, see my post on May 13, 2014.)

For more information, please check out the document Dr. Atkinson prepared here:
