Response to Maud Grieve and Hilda Leyel


Dear Joan,
I agree that it is strange that so little is known about Maud Grieve. However there is an article by Barty Philips entitled “The Indefatigable Mrs Grieve” in The Herb Society’s journal Herbs 2002 Vol 27 No1. Barty has edited Herbs magazine for 4 years and may have some material you can look at, or help you with your research.

Past copies of the magazines of The Herb Society must be in the library at Sulgrave Manor. The Herb Society has had to move a couple of times and I don’t know whether the library has been collated and indexed. It is open to members, but at the last Conference it was stated that no one had ever asked to look at it. I would love to look at it, but it isn’t convenient to me where I live. Presumably the articles you want to see in The Herbal Review Vol. 3 (3) 5 (3) and 6 (2) should be there.

When you come to the UK we could try and sort out the material you need to look at. Please let us know when you are coming over.

Our administrator, Nicky Westwood, will not be in the office at the moment as it is the holiday period, but she would be a contact for you.

A wonderful project, Audrey
