In the 1990s, Helen Mussallem worked closely with Elizabeth Crawley to record her personal stories in an autobiography. They intended to address all of Dr. Mussallem’s life, from her childhood in Maple Ridge to her retirement years.
Only parts of sections 5, “The CNA Years,” and section 6.1.4., “Commonwealth Nurses Federation”, were written. The outline below reveals their original intentions for the autobiography project.
The text went through several handwritten and typewritten drafts, with corrections and revisions by Helen Mussallem and Elizabeth Crawley. This version of their work contains all of their completed text, arranged in chronological order.
