Person Female Born 1868 Died 30/4/1942
Founder of the North Islington Infant Welfare Centre and School for Mothers in Holloway in 1913. At that time, around 10% of children in Islington died before their fifth birthday. She and her colleagues worked to educate mothers in preventing disease and death among their families. By 1920, the clinic had received over 12,000 visitors and its services had expanded to include dentistry, massage and artificial sunlight treatment.
Married William Brock Keen, which explains the stone plaque referring to her as "Mrs W. B. Keen". National Archives have her as "Mrs A.M. Keen" and that we can't explain, unless they have her confused with her daughter Althea Davis, who took over running the centre.
