Mr. Henry Goulstone
Mr. Henry Goulstone is Secretary of the Auckland Chamber of Commerce, of the Auckland Fire Underwriters' Association, and of the Mackelvie Trust, in addition to being a public accountant and auditor and F.I.A., New Zealand. He was born near Bristol, was educated at private schools, and commenced a business career with a general merchant in that city. Mr. Goulstone came out to the colonies in 1857–8, and remained in business on the Darling Downs, Queensland, for about three years. Having to quit that locality on account of his health, he joined the Bank of New South Wales in Sydney, and, after a few months, was removed to New Zealand, where he became well known as a banker. After about fifteen years of service, he resigned from the Bank, and again entered into mercantile pursuits; and ultimately joined the New Zealand Loan and Mercantile Agency Company as its colonial accountant. Mr. Goulstone's commercial and financial training has been very beneficial in connection with his present appointments and positions.
