  • File
  • 2002

Handwritten letter from David Malouf answering three questions that Yvonne Smith had asked: how did An Imaginary Life first come to be published; how were Fly Away Peter and Child's Play published; and in writing Johnno - what was the possible influence of Peter Paul Ruben's painting The Return of the Peasants from the Fields. As the questions were not included in Malouf's response, Smith has provided a transcript of the handwritten letter with the questions included. Typed transcript of the Diary of David Malouf written while writing Child's Play, Fly Away Peter, and short stories in January / February 1981. The handwritten version of this transcript was shared with Malouf over lunch and he shared information about the content which Smith has included as footnotes.

McGregor scrapbooks

  • F422
  • File
  • 1880-1923

Four scrapbooks containing Australian and English literary and historical material of the late 19th century. Includes original photographs; a telegram from Wm Tasker to John McGregor, solicitor, announcing the capture of the Kenniff Brothers (Patrick Kenniff and James Kenniff), dated 1902 (located in volume three); newspaper cuttings from, mostly, unidentified newspapers with poetry and some articles. The articles include: 'Our Men of Mark', Daily Observer, 188-? (v.1) ; and 'Where the pelican builds' by Mary Hannay Foott (signed holograph with comments about poem) (located in volume three). Most of the material in the scrapbooks is from before Katharine was born and is most likely created by one or both of her parents, John George McGregor, solicitor, and Catherine Elizabeth, née Ferguson. The last scrapbook contains: newspaper cuttings of results from University of Queensland students which include Katharine's, from the early 1920s as well as articles written by Jon Michie; a letter from Isabel Michie (dated 31 Jul 1946) thanking Katharine for her letter after the death of her husband John Michie; a carbon copy typescript letter by John McGregor (dated 7 Jan 1920) to his agent in Edinburgh which mentions among other things that he is sending a copy of book of poems by Henry Lawson (whom John McGregor met in a bookseller's shop in Sydney); a note to John McGregor from Littleton Groom (dated 10 Jan 1924); and a letter to Miss McGregor (dated 26 Mar 1971) from Eric Davis (the youngest son of Arthur Davis).
