AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'The personal diaries of Miles Franklin - displayed for the first time along with letters, literary papers, photo albums and personal belongings - reveal the secrets and little-known stories of one of twentieth century Australia's literary greats. Although Miles Franklin published 15 books in her lifetime, she increasingly feared that nothing she wrote would match the success of her astonishing first novel, My Brilliant Career, published in 1901.

This exhibition highlights Franklin's little-known career overseas, including her pioneering work with the Women's Trade Union League in Chicago from 1908 to 1915 and as a cook in Macedonia during World War I.'
