Scope and content
After the death of Daphne Mayo on 31 July 1982, a group of friends decided to commemorate her public work for art in Queensland. Those involved included: Lloyd Rees, Professor Robert Cummings, Robert Haines, Judith McKay, Mim Shaw, sculptor colleagues, art dealers, and members of Mayo and Lahey families. From this, the Queensland Art Gallery agreed to have a casting done in bronze from 'Susannah' a plaster model by Mayo; and Judith McKay wrote Daphne Mayo : a tribute to her work for art in Queensland which was published by The Friends of Daphne Mayo in 1983.
Mim Shaw was one of the organisers of the 'Friends of Daphne Mayo' group, and her address was used in correspondence for the group. Mim wrote and/or drafted correspondence regarding the Judith McKay booklet, fundraising for it, promoting it and sending it to people and libraries as required.
