ABOUT US


The Lilias Trotter Advisory Board consists of five women whose lives have been impacted by the legacy of Lilias Trotter and are committed to broadening the exposure to her life and works through a variety of venues.

The formation of this Board was given its initial thrust with Brian and Sally Oxley’s acquisition of the Trotter/Egerton Family Collection of journals, sketchbooks, photographs and other items of archival interest. Originally tasked with securing a home for the archives and the selection of a film director for a documentary on her life (Many Beautiful Things), we were strengthened in our desire to build on the past efforts of countless individuals to not only preserve her legacy but to present it to a new generation.
