People of Leeds #13: Gertrude Paul

In the second of three special articles to mark our Unfinished Business exhibition focusing on Women in our collections, we reproduce a piece about Gertrude Paul, educator and activist. The document below was produced and written by Dawn Murray for Leeds City Council, based on research by the Leeds Civic Trust.

This article is #13 in our People of Leeds series – mini biographies of lesser-known contributors to Leeds’ rich heritage. 

The Civic Trust have also produced a video celebrating the life and achievements of Gertrude Paul

Reproduced below are articles from the Yorkshire Evening Post and Yorkshire Post, which provide more biographical details about Gertrude Paul – click an image to expand and zoom to read the text:
