Manny’s birthday book – December 23

December 23, 2011

Kate Greenaway's Birthday Book for ChildrenMy grandmother, who I called Manny, had a birthday book.  I’m posting the entries throughout the year, as they appear.

From Manny’s Birthday Book:  December 23rd – Dulcie Kelly

Here’s another little fellow,

In fancy dress you see,

A little cavalier, I think

That he must really be.

Dulcie J Kelly was born in the East Coolgardie Registration District of Western Australia in 1908 (1908/105WA).

In 1924 Dulcie Kelly passed examinations in General English and Bookkeeping at Kalgoorlie Technical School.

In 1925 Dulcie J Kelly passed Grade IV Honours in Music Theory in the University of Western Australia Public Examinations.

In 1935 it was reported that Mrs Kelly and her daughter, Miss Dulcie Kelly had left Kalgoorlie to make their home in Perth.

After that Dulcie Kelly drops off the Trove radar.

If you think you know who Dulcie Kelly was, please comment and let me know.
