The first Plunket medal

Victoria, Lady Plunket, presents the first Plunket medal to the first Plunket nurse, Mrs Murray, in Dunedin in 1909. No mere figurehead in the Plunket Society, Lady Plunket addressed meetings, forged a national administration and helped to design the nurses’ uniforms. She also patented a hood for baby prams and other conveyances for carrying children, Truth reported in 1909, commenting that Lady Plunket was the mother of seven, so should know what was needed.
