Person Hyde, Ruby
[Taken from the South Australian guide Finding Your Own Way]
Ruby Hyde, a graduate of the Melbourne Bible Institute, was matron at Oodnadatta Children's Home. She later ran Colebrook Home for many years with the assistance of Sister Rutter who had migrated from England. In 1952, as a result of a split within the United Aborigines Mission, Sisters Hyde and Rutter left Colebrook to start their own hostel for girls, Tanderra. Sisters Hyde and Rutter ran Tanderra until 1963 when Mr Noel and Mrs Iris Wiley, who had been missionaries at Oodnadatta in the 1950s, took over for eighteen months.
