Notes:
In 1903 some of the 260 members of the Wattle Club decided to expand their activities. At a meeting held on the 4th of August that year, members voted to carry the motion: 'That the name of the Wattle Club be changed to "Alexandra Club". Rule 1 of the Club states categorically: 'The name of the Club shall be the Alexandra Club and it shall be exclusively for social and non-political purposes'. The only quality sought in a prospective candidate was - and is - that she should be 'clubable'. The Alexandra Club is one of the oldest private women’s Clubs in Australia, situated in the heart of Melbourne’s CBD at 81 Collins Street.
