Gertrude Bell


From wikipedia: “an English writer, traveller, political officer, administrator, archaeologist and spy who explored, mapped, and became highly influential to British imperial policy-making due to her skill and contacts, built up through extensive travels in Greater Syria, Mesopotamia, Asia Minor, and Arabia. Along with T. E. Lawrence, Bell helped establish the Hashemite dynasties in what is today Jordan as well as in Iraq.”

Connected to Kim Philby by the contents of the safety deposit box. Photographs, correspondence to Museum of Iraq enquiring about documents written by her.
