  • 13 Apr 1939, Mrs. Montague Cohen
    By the death yesterday of Mrs. Montague Cohen, Melbourne charities have lost a very real and generous worker.
    Her chief interest was the Berry-street Foundling Home and Hospital, with which she was associated for more than forty years. She first joined the committee of the home in 1897. In 1899 she became hon. treasurer, and vice-president in 1913. She was elected president in 1921, a position she held until her death.
    Her enthusiastic interest in the home was shown when, in 1931, at the celebration of her golden wedding, she asked that her friends should, instead of making a present to her and her husband, make a gift for the benefit of the children in the home. In 1934 she gave a donation of £1000 to the endowment fund. She was also a generous supporter of Jewish and other charities. Her only son, Mr. Cohen, M.L.A., is in England.6
