Miscellaneous elements from the Miriam Green Ellis collection, including manuscript pages.

The illustrated diary reveals the daring, fun-loving, ironic twists of her personality. The draft typescripts show a writer at work. The Lacombe airfield photos demonstrate the strength and jocularity of her friendships. The photos of Edmonton contemporaries, male and female, and views of a relaxed MGE disclose public and private dimensions of her life. The inclusion of juxtapositions illustrates both the potential in differences in artistic presentation and the occasional distortions resulting from the hand-colouring of the glass slides.
