The Irena Higgins Papers held by the Kew Historical Society include personal and professional papers, written by or collected by her, relating to child and adult mental health issues and treatment, particularly at the Kew Mental Hospital, the Kew Children’s Cottages and the establishment of the first emergency housing in Kew. Donated by her family following her death in 2014, the collection is housed in a number of archive boxes compartmentalised into folders (sub-series). Each folder contains items grouped by subject.
