Nationwide events will mark anniversary

A nationwide series of events this month will mark the 50th anniversary of the passing of a woman who made a significant contribution to Australian religious history in general and to the national Baha’i Community in particular.

Clara Dunn (1869-1960) introduced the Baha’i Faith to Australia in 1920 with her husband, Hyde Dunn (1855-1941).


A national event will be held at the University of New South Wales on 13 November, where Baha’is who knew Clara Dunn will recount their memories of her. The keynote speakers will be prominent Australian Baha'is Dr. Peter Khan and Dr. Janet Khan.

The following day, a memorial service will be held at the Baha’i House of Worship in Sydney to commemorate the life and service of Mrs Dunn.
