Part of Daphne Mayo Papers
Handwritten notes for the biography of Vida Lahey by Daphne Mayo. The notes are written on scraps of paper, envelopes (addressed to Daphne Mayo), and paper. It includes 6 pages of typescript, with handwritten emendations, entitled 'The development of Art in Queensland'. Vida Lahey wrote this article for the Exhibition of Queensland art : catalogue : Queensland National Art Gallery, Brisbane, 10th September to 7th October, 1951. On one envelope there is a draft of a letter by Mayo to Mavis asking her to read and criticise her article on Vida which isn't finished and was not typed (a requirement for submission). There is one sheet of paper with a brief account of Daphne Mayo's life: mentioning her studies; travels; the Godfrey Rivers Bequest (and the purchase of 'The Cypriot' by Dobell); the Queensland Art Fund; and the raising of funds to match the Darnell bequest and the impacts of that task.
