Letter to George Blakemore, Principal Wagga Wagga Teachers' College

Original hand-script letter to George Blakemore.

Re: a tentative inscription for the Dame Mary Gilmore Memorial Gates and her wish that the Gurwood Senior School be remembered in it. There is the possibility that Mary may not attend the official dedication ceremony because of her continuing bouts of illness and/or because her birthday party has been organised by the Australiasian Book Society around the raising of funds for the now Chair of Australia Literature. As informed by Alan Marshall, and very probably as much for her communist leanings as for her talent, she is now recognized by the chief literature societies of Moscow and Peking among others.

Letter to George Blakemore, Principal Wagga Wagga Teachers' College

Original hand-script letter to George Blakemore.

Mary Gilmore regrets that she cannot attend the official dedication ceremony and proposes that a friend, Dorothy Catts, widow of the late J.H. Catts MHR, represent her. She wishes to give the College, among other things, an aboriginal axe-head from Queensland and shingles from the beach at Puerta Gallegos in South Patagonia. She encloses a small donation of £2.20 to go towards the purchase of a book to chronicle events, people, autographs, etc. - the start of a continuous history for the next hundred years of the college.*

He informs Mary that the College's proposed history is underway. He expresses his interest in the Dobell portrait of Mary and inquires whether it would be possible for it to be displayed in Wagga as it journeys to the capital cities for exhibition. The portrait was commissioned in 1955 by the Australiasian Book Society of Melbourne on the occasion of Mary Gilmore's ninetieth birthday.
