Connection collections and collecting connections: Reconstructing the life of Mrs Edith Coleman: Reconstructing the life of Mrs Edith Coleman

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

In 1934, Edith Coleman celebrated the opening of the new National Herbarium of Victoria with an article for The Argusnewspaper. Edith hoped that the ‘handsome, dignified exterior of the building will encourage a better acquaintance with its contents’ as more than just ‘a vegetable mortuary, in which, in paper cerements, thousands of flowers that once brightened the earth and scented the summer air lay awaiting inevitable decay.
