Ida Lee was an historical geographer who wrote several books on maritime exploration in the Pacific. In the late 1890s she moved to England and spent much of her spare time searching through British libraries, including the Admiralty. There Lee began to study and transcribe a number of journals and logbooks from many of the British historical voyages. Her books are published under either the name of Lee (maiden name) or Marriott (married name) and copies of most of her works are held at the Mitchell Library. Through her studies Lee developed a considerable knowledge of systematic botany and botanical taxonomy and was able to update Allan Cunningham's nomenclature. Lee was appointed a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society of London 1913 and was only the second person to be made an honorary Fellow of the Royal Australian Historical Society.
