Research

There has been interest from later descendants and academics in researching Priscilla Wakefield. One of the descendants was Mrs Mary Priscilla Mitchell who accumulated a lot of Wakefield material. Following is a link to the transcript of a recording that was made in 1986 and held in the Borrow Collection at Flinders University http://hdl.handle.net/2328/23546 Click on the ‘view/open’ link to read the transcript.

Of particular interest is the confirmation that Priscilla’s Journals could not be located at that time and appear to be lost.

  1. She is pretty muddled at times – it’s interesting but not accurate about a lot of things. I wonder if Ann Shteir ever wrote her book? She wrote the foreword to the 1995 edition of Mental Improvement and definitely does not regard Priscilla as a feminist.
