Marion's friendship with Phoebe

Marion Erdelyi was a friend of Phoebes and actually stayed at Greenwood. Her husband was a Hungarian fencer , capt of the Cdn fencing team and knew Percy Nobbs. I am an artist, and about ten years ago she asked me if I could look after her paintings as her apartment was small. The first two paintings were portraits done by Cecil Shepherd when she was in Paris from the 20s. They are very beautiful. Since her recent death, I also have a painting by Percy Nobbs and copies of his articles on fencing. Mrs Erdelyi always told me that Phoebe gave her the paintings because she didn't want her brother to have them so there was obviously some problem. Anyway, I have them.

Thank you Ann for telling us about Marion's friendship with Phoebe. The paintings by Cecil and Percy and his fencing notes would all be welcome in Greenwood's archives. We will be in touch.
