Madeleine Hamilton


Madeleine Hamilton is a long-term aficionado of mid-20th-century design and popular culture, and the owner of an extensive collection of posters, books and ephemera relating to American pin-ups girls.

In 2003 she commenced a four-year mission to uncover Australia’s pin-ups of the 40s and 50s that resulted in a PhD from the University of Melbourne as well as the SBS documentary ‘Paper Dolls: Australian Pin-up Girls of World War II’.
