Australian Marguerite Dale (1883-1963) was a member of the Lyceum Club's Literary Circle.

Marguerite was a prominent Australian playwright, politician, and social reformer. She fought for women's rights and funded many of her activities by writing plays. Her fictional theatrical publications were quite popular in Australia, and she eventually took one of her works, The Mainstay, to London in 1923.
