Another key figure
A fourth figure beyond Vivien Leigh, Dorothy Holman and Ann McMenamin also played a important role in making connections between the South West of England and the memory of Vivien Leigh.
Vivien Leigh’s daughter, Suzanne Farrington (née Holman), was connected to Topsham Museum as a donor, but also a former resident of the town. She spent three years at No. 25 The Strand during her childhood when she lived with her aunt during WWII. Vivien Leigh and Suzanne Farrington's grandmother, Gertrude Hartley, wrote postcards to No. 25 The Strand from New York.
Suzanne Farrington was also repsonsible for donating many of the materials that are now held in other museums in the South West, including the Royal Albert Memorial Museum and the Fashion Museum Bath.
