"Your paper is fascinating. I can add a little more about Leo Kruks. He joined the RPS as a junior member in 1945 and gained his Associate in 1947. His address was 12 Hillsborough Court. Mortimer Crescent, London NW6. He seems to have left the RPS…"

"Hi.  I have attached the exhibition file and the scanned interview.  The exhibition file was compiled by me, most refrences included in the text, it is unfinished but gives a broad outline of the show but no images.  I think all the…"

"How interesting. If you look at the interview link I sent Ismay, Bernard's daughter Miriam refers to his left-wing politics and the fact that her mother worked full-time so that he could continue his photography; I noticed that the publications…"

"My own brief research into Bernard was due to his involvement in a unique, one-off exhibition of photography in 1952.  A group of Left-wing photographers calling themselves 'Focus on Life', created a show called 'People Like…"

"This is all fantastic - thank you very much! It's nice to read a bit of background. This fits very well with the photo I have, which was taken for a socialist-pacifist organisation called the Union for Democratic Control. This is all much more…"

"I did a little more research on Ancestry and found Cyril M. Bernard's children (I'll send you a link so you can see the details). His daughter Miriam (who is the elder child) uses her maiden name for work, is here, with an e-mail address…"

"The magazine interview is illustrated with, amongst other images, a portrait of the photograher's daughter, aged, I would guess, about 8-10, unfortunately no name.  The magazine is from 1967."

Matthew Mawson replied to Ismay Milford's discussion Request for information: Cyril M. Bernard (20th c photographer)
"In my own files I have some information on Cyril M. Bernard, it consists of a summary of his professional life (digistal file) and an interview with Ron Spillman (hard copy) extracted from a 1960s magazine.  It may not help in your tracing…"

"Not sure, but I think if you print out what I've sent you and then go into the GRO page you'll have enough to order from the total of those details. Good luck! Anne"

"Fantastic - thank you! The dates also fit well, if we assume a 1921 birth then training and 40 years experience by the time of the 1991 newspaper article. I'll request a death certificate and hope it leads me to a next of kin. Very much…"

"I've just found a reference to him, without the M., in a Staffordshire paper, so that confirms he's the one from Staffordshire I think, as it's his opinion on a photographic/art exhibition. "
