Summary
  • The papers in MS 8890 relate to members of Anne Edgeworth's family, chiefly her grandfather Sir Tannatt Edgeworth David, her grandmother Caroline David, her mother Margaret Edgeworth McIntyre, and her aunt Mary Edgeworth David. All the series contain family correspondence. Correspondents include Mary David, the Edgeworth Davids, the McIntyres, Anne Edgeworth, and all family members. The Edgeworth David component includes honours, letters of sympathy and tributes after his death, photographs, articles by and about him, and reprints of some of his papers. The Funafuti diary, "The unscientific account of a scientific expedition", and material on the Samurai sword are an important part of Caroline David's papers. Margaret McIntyre's papers include her writings and papers on community schools and centres. Mary David's papers have a large component of letters to her niece Anna Edgeworth. Handwritten drafts and illustrated typescripts of the unpublished "Letters to Meg" are an interesting part of the collection.
  • The collection also consists of correspondence between John Edward (Ned) Touche (formerly Touch) and the David family during the years 1889-1943. There are also newspaper clippings about David, a reprint of one of his papers, handwritten copies of a Sydney morning herald article, "Formation of coral reefs" and of a poem, and three sketches of coral reefs by David (12 boxes, 1 carton, 1 fol. box).
  • The Acc02.056 instalment comprises photographs and other papers of the David family (3 boxes).
  • The Acc06.099 instalment comprises copies of three letters, 1898 and 1900, from T.W.E. David to A.E. Finckh. There is also an unpublished biography of Edgeworth David by L.A. Cotton, ca. 1950, donated by David Branagan who received it from Les Cotton (L.A. Cotton's son), deceased (1 box).
  • The Acc14.099 instalment includes five letters and one card from David to John Edward Touche (1916-1934); a photograph of David in military uniform dated Feb 1916; cuttings about David’s career and death; a published version of David’s application for the Chair of Geology and Physical Geography, University of Sydney, 1891; and tributes to David by the Rev A.P.
