Mary Patricia Anderson
Mary Patricia Anderson (17 March 1887 – 1966) was one of the first two women appointed to the New Zealand Legislative Council (upper house).
With Mary Dreaver she was appointed to the council on 31 January 1946 by the First Labour Government, after a law change in 1941 to make women eligible to serve on the council. They served to the end of 1950, when the Legislative Council was abolished by the First National Government.
