A brief, but useful biography for Jessie Vera Brown can be found here:

In additon, she must have met the colonial officer, Eric Bailey and his wife Irma Bailey during her time in Nepal. It is clear from correspondence in the archives that Irma Bailey recommended the museum as a home for her collection. HJessie Brown's Yateley textiles do featured designs taken from Mrs Bailey's own tracings and drawings that she gave to the museum in the same year, 1965.
