Formatted Abstract/Summary
The Louise Campbell Collection, UQFL120 consist of papers (correspondence, photographs, newspaper cuttings, photocopied articles, audiotapes, films, slides, invitations and art exhibition catalogues)  relating to Charles Bateson, Ronald Campbell, Catherine Bateson (previously known as Helen Campbell), Ernestine Hill, Sam Fullbrook, Lloyd’s Bookshop (Brisbane), Paul Knobel, Billy Jones, and Hollie Charlton.

She is the wife of writer and editor Ronald Campbell (who edited the Australian Journal for 25 years), and mother of writer Catherine Bateson (previously known as Helen Campbell). Louise was Assistant Editor on the Australian Journal (1950 to 1954), then edited the National Gas Bulletin and ran a literary agency using the pseudonym Mary Bounty. She went to England in 1955 and for the next five years edited three quarterlies with English County Magazines. She was the owner of Lloyds Bookshop in Brisbane from 1965 to 1985 and Elwood Village Bookshop from 1986-1988.

Additional Notes The 15-minute reel unfortunately leads off with an inconsequential segment of a busker friend in the Elizabeth Arcade (less than 2 minutes). From there, two events are interspersed. Wendy Moss (in pink tracksuit pants) is helped by other artists at the studio warehouse at 40 Charlotte St, Brisbane, to construct the installation A TEMPORARY AFFAIR (see poster in this collection). It moves on to another artist (Wendy Mills) occupying another space in the same building, with shots of both her work and her living space. It switches then to this artist crossing Charlotte Street and shows the building that was going on in that street at the time (1983) to try to give some idea of why the warehouse was available so cheaply etc. The next segment switches to the courtyards of the Terrace Houses, Coronation Drive, showing some young people moving into a flat and some of the other young people who were living in the Terrace Houses. It then moves back to Wendy's installation (identified by the children/strollers), which is being completed by Wendy putting down the surround to the installation. All the plastic bags being used, both on the floor and hanging were filled with water. We see the installation completely finished. Then back to the Terrace Houses last shot taken before renovation started (note the top balcony rails still boxed in with fibro). Information kindly provided by Louise Campbell.

No sound.
