Henry Lamb made a name for himself as painter of literary and group portraits in the 1920s. There may be a possibility that his eldest sister Helen, a don at Newnham College, Cambridge, might have been invovled in the commissioning of this group portrait of five Fellows of St Hugh's in the Mordan Library. It shows, from left to right, Evelyn Procter, history tutor (1926–1946) and Principal (1946–1962); Edith Wardale, English language tutor (1902–1923) and Honorary Fellow (1929–1943); Elizabeth Francis, French tutor (1927–1957); Barbara Gwyer, Principal (1924–1946); and Cecily Ady, history tutor (1909–1923) and Research Fellow (1929–1950).
