  • Notes 
    • Eva Elliott was one of the founders of the Women's Institute for South Waterloo, being appointed secretary-treasurer when the group was formed in 1903.

      Born in Clinton, of Scottish-Irish parents, before her marriage she was engaged in newspaper work with the Galt Reformer.
      Elliott arranged for speakers sent out by the Department of Agriculture to hold meetings with rural and urban women. She was always present, enrolled members, and became a most valuable source of information and guidance.

      Elliott served as president of the Central Dumfries branch of the South Waterloo District and also of the London area. She was an excellent singer, held offices in Knox's Presbyterian Church, Galt, started the Young Women's Association which later became the YWCA and for forty years was a director of the South Waterloo Agricultural Society. She also helped create and support a Country Women's Rest Room in Galt.
