A Tribute to Hyde & Clara Dunn – by Mariette Leong

In this online presentation, Mariette Leong, daughter of Hand of the Cause of God Collis Featherstone, pays tribute to Hyde and Clara Dunn (often referred to as ‘Father and Mother Dunn’) by telling us about their lives, and also sharing some of her own personal memories as well.

John Henry Hyde Dunn and Clara Dunn were the first Baha’is to come to Australia on April 10, 1920, and this presentation takes place as Australian Baha’is celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the Baha’i Faith in Australia.

This online presentation was given on April 18, 2020.

Special thanks to Mariette and Ho-San Leong, and to all those involved in helping to make this happen.
