Clare_Stevenson (1903–1988) was the inaugural director of the Women's_Auxiliary
Australian_Air_Force (WAAAF), from May 1941 to March 1946. As such, she was
described in 2001 as "the most significant woman in the history of the Air
Force". Formed as a branch of the Royal_Australian_Air_Force in March 1941, the
WAAAF was the first and largest uniformed women's service in Australia_during
World_War II. Born and educated in Victoria, Stevenson was an executive with
the Berlei company when she was appointed Director WAAAF. Initially ranked
squadron_officer, she rose to become group_officer by April 1942. Stevenson
resumed her civilian career following her discharge from the Air Force in 1946.
Long active in adult education and social welfare, she helped form aid
organisations including the Carers Association of New South Wales (now Carers
NSW) after retiring from Berlei in 1960. (Full article...)
