Mrs. C.C. Garbett

[Great Britain] (b?/d?)

Mrs. C.C. Garbett ( formerly Miss M. Maynard) traveled to Iraq with his husband Mr. C. C. Garbett to be part of the restrict group of people nominated by Sir Percy Cox to build the British Secretariat in Iraq.. "Cox needed to recruit a small team of people on whom he could count to accompany him back to Iraq . This team included J.B. Philby and C.C. Garbett , both of whom had served under him during the War Years in Mesoptamia. Major R.E. Cheesman , his Ornithologist friend, accompanied him as a private Secretary...".. It is curious to find here direct links to the two women who designed the 1923 Iraq series...(Mrs. C.C. Garbett and Miss Edith Cheesman)..
The data I have is not from the Artist life but mainly from her husband's..
