Lola Henry (born Helena) worked as the personal secretary for four Dalhousie University presidents, including A.S. MacKenzie, Carleton Stanley, A.E. Kerr and Henry Hicks, as well as for the Board of Governors. Born in 1903, she worked for a Halifax doctor until 1921; in the aftermath of the Halifax Explosion, she volunteered in an emergency hospital set up in the YMCA on Barrington Street. She first came to work at Dalhousie University as a filing clerk in 1921; in 1968, she received an honorary doctorate, presented by Henry Hicks.
Records were donated to Dalhousie University Archives by Lola Henry in accession (52-94) on October 24, 1994.
