Conditions Governing Access

Please refer to the collection's catalogue record for the access conditions (http://nla.gov.au/nla.cat-vn1905928).

Conditions Governing Use

Copying and publishing of unpublished manuscript material is subject to copyright restrictions. For such material, written permission to publish must be obtained from the copyright holder(s). Copying of unpublished material for research purposes is permissible 50 years after the death of the creator of the material.

Preferred Citation

Items from this collection should be cited as '[Title or description of manuscript item], Papers of Judith Wright, National Library of Australia, [class number, box number and series and/or file number]'.

Provenance

The papers were acquired from Judith Wright in a number of instalments, the first of which was received in 1978. In 2002 and 2005, further papers were acquired from Wright's daughter, Meredith McKinney. In 2005, a small consignment of papers, consisting of autobiographical material given to Patricia Clarke by Wright in 2000, was received from Patricia Clarke.

Arrangement

The papers have been listed by instalment. Wright grouped her papers into manila files, and the order of the papers within each file has been maintained. Where provided, the title of the file has been used in the file descriptions for each box. This also applies to the instalments of papers received in 2005 from Wright's daughter, Meredith McKinney, and Patricia Clarke, the contents of which appear to have been arranged by the donors. Because the papers are listed by instalment, there is no discernible order.

Correspondence of Judith Wright can be found in the personal papers of numerous writers and activists which are held in the Manuscript Collection. To locate the correspondence, search the online finding aids to personal papers via the Library's website.

The Oral History Section of the Library holds a number of sound recordings relating to Wright, including interviews and poetry readings. The Oral History catalogue can be searched online via the Library's website.

The Pictures Section of the Library holds photographs of Wright, a portrait of her by Kahan, Louis and the Britannica Australia Awards Literature medal awarded to her in 1964. The Pictures catalogue can be searched and some of these images viewed online via the Library's website.

Wright's published works, including anthologies of poetry, fiction and non-fiction, children's books and musical settings of her poems, are listed on the Library's catalogue, which can be searched online via the Library's website.

A small number of items have been digitised and are available online. Three poems from Box 37, files 281 and 282 have been digitised as part of the Library's Treasures Gallery.

The items that have been digitised are available online via the catalogue record for the collection.

Biographical Note

Judith Arundell Wright was a poet, essayist, conservationist and campaigner for Aboriginal rights. She was born into a family of pioneering pastoralists on 31 May 1915, at Thalgarrah station near Armidale, New South Wales, the daughter of Phillip Wright and his wife Ethel (neé Bigg). At first, Wright was educated home, but following the death of her mother, went to New England Girl's School in Armidale. She completed an Arts course at the University of Sydney in 1936 and was awarded an Hon D Litt from the following universities: University of Queensland (1962), the University of New England (1963), the University of Sydney (1977), Monash University (1977) and the Australian National University (1981).

Wright was 25 when her first poem was published and her first collection of verse, The moving image, was published in 1946. She went on to publish many other works including poetry, a biography of her pioneering family, children's books and her autobiography.

Wright was awarded Commonwealth Literary Fund Fellowships in 1949 and 1962, a Creative Arts Fellowship (ANU) in 1974, a Senior Anzac Fellowship in 1976 and a three-year Australia Council Literature Board Senior Writers Fellowship in 1977.

Wright was actively involved with issues relating to conservation, wildlife preservation and Aboriginal rights. These interests were reflected in her poetry and writings, which included her book, The cry for the dead (1981), about the treatment of Aborigines by settlers in Queensland from the 1840s to the 1920s. Organisations with which Wright was involved include:
