This section aims to provide a variety of resources about individuals. I will be adding material about others I discover in the course of my research.
The Gibson Family page relates to my research on my relatives, the poets Elizabeth Gibson Cheyne and her brother Wilfrid Gibson. In future I hope to add information about their father, amateur antiquarian and photographer John Pattison Gibson. The page also includes material on Michael Gibson (Wilfrid’s son), children’s author and one-time art editor on the comic Eagle.
The page dedicated to Helen includes her obituary and links to some of her own writing and photographs, as well as tributes written after her death by friends and colleagues. If you have memories of Helen to contribute, please send them to me: judy [at] judygreenway [dot] org [dot] uk – I’d love to hear from you.
