This series comprises personal items belonging to Daisy Bates which were included in a suitcase of Daisy Bates' clothes and other personal effects which the South Australian Museum acquired after her death. The items apparently relate to the last few years of Bates' life, when she was confined to a 'sanitorium' in Prospect, South Australia. This series is divided into 3 major sub-series as follows.
AA23/5/1 consists of personal letters and cards.
AA23/5/2 consists of miscellaneous newspaper clippings collected by Daisy Bates.
AA23/5/3 consists of clothing and other personal items.
Some items from this suitcase have been placed elsewhere in the Bates collection; the volume of Mankind and a biographical article from People magazine have been placed in Series 2.
