Judith Mildred De Visme Fyfe, 1944 - Papers of the Matriarchs Wellington, New Zealand. Judith Fyfe has worked as a broadcaster in radio and television and as a scriptwriter for television drama. She was co-founder and executive director of the New Zealand Oral History Archive and in 1987 was awarded a Fulbright Scholarship to carry out research into and lecture on oral history in the United States. `Matriarchs: A generation of New Zealand women talk to Judith Fyfe' is about `a group of women who have been chosen to represent aspects of their generation: ten women who are regarded as matriarchs or leaders within their family, community organisation or profession'. Fyfe's aim was to `select women from different levels of society - rural and urban, with different educational racial and cultural backgrounds - who were typical of their generation rather than exceptional.' This was a combined archival/publication project. The aim was both to collect extensive material for the purpose of creating a historical record and to provide subject matter for popular publication.
