Brisbane, Australia

March, 1978

Dear V & B

Greetings from sunny Queensland, where the wet season is just beginning, with a cyclone in north Q’ld. I am back working in the Dept Microbiology after the Christmas/New Year break, starting to write my thesis and related papers. Many thanks for the IITA card. I hope all is going well there. Bob is due here tomorrow. Best wishes for 1979.

Yours sincerely, Gabrielle

Built on land given by Dr. Mayne and his sister, the University building was opened in 1948.

It strikes me as weird (typical?) that they name Dr. Mayne but his sister is not named. Dr. James Mayne worked at the Brisbane Hospital from 1891 until 1904. His sister’s name was Mary Emilia. She never married.
