This entry is from Obituaries Australia

Miss Maggie Hall (71), one of the last links with the pioneer Labor movement of the 'eighties, died yesterday.

Before this century Miss Hall was a member of the Political Labor League, forerunner of the present Australian Labor Party.

Mr. Ramsay MacDonald, Prime Minister of England, and old A.L.P. stalwarts, used her mother's guest house in Hunter Street as a rendezvous.

The funeral will leave the Church of Christ, Campbell Street, this afternoon.

Ten days ago her brother, Inspector W. A. Hall, died. Surviving relatives include Mrs. Cummings, her sister, and brothers, Messrs. D. R., Harry, Walter, and William Hall.
