the poet in San Francisco

here's a view of a cabinet on show at the San Francisco Public Library, the picture kindly sent to me by Susan Filter in Berkeley - at bottom right is an opening in LOOM, wood engravings by Richard Wagener, poems by 'the present writer', and the book published jointly by David Pascoe's Nawakum Press and Richard Wagener's Mixolydian Press, both in California - see Nawakum Press for details -

the estate of George South

I am at present planning to make a book of the poems of George South, who took his life in either Melbourne or Sydney in 1965 - his poems were all typed up by Margo Sutherland in New Zealand around 1964, and I have had this collection, and 9 of George's Notebooks, in my possession since that time - 

I have no idea however who, if anyone, was/is trustee of his estate, or even (which I suspect) whether he died intestate - the only clue I have is that he knew someone called Helen closely just before he died - 

if anyone can help, I'd be very grateful -
