Most of the papers that comprise the Lilias Stuart Humphreys collection came into the possession of the donor, Lady Hurley, after Lilias' death and before the death of her widower, John Humphreys, in 1989. Lady Hurley was married to Sir John Garling Hurley (1906-1989), whose mother, Annie Elizabeth Garling was Lilias' aunt. In 1991, Lady Hurley commissioned Patricia R. McDonald to list the collection and to make recommendations about its dispersal. An inventory was compiled to the papers in various subject groups and accompanied the collection when it was presented to the State Library of New South Wales in the same year.
