GC - Gentlemens' Committee


At the first public meeting of the subscribers to the Lying-in Hospital and Infirmary for Diseases Peculiar to Women and Children two committees were established. The Ladies' Committee, which was the Committee of Management (sometimes referred to as the General Committee) and the Gentlemen's Committee which was established “for reference and counsel in time of need”.

In 1870 the Gentlemen’s and Ladies’ Committees formally merged, although the Annual Reports continue to list the two groups separately until 1972, and Minutes of the Gentlemen's Committee exist from the 1880s.
