Nelson Historical Society Journal, Volume 3, Issue 3, September 1977
It is with pleasure that the Nelson Historical Society issues a new Journal. With this publication we welcome Mrs Margaret Brown as our new Editor. The Society's thanks go to our retiring Editor, Dr C. R. Barnicoat for the many journals he has so successfully produced over a long period. He was responsible for the attractive formal used for the Journals during the past ten years.
This issue contains a variety of short articles which cover a wide range of interest in aspects of Nelson Provincial History. A valuable index to Volumes I and 2 of the Society's Journals, compiled by Mr B. E. Dickinson, has been included and should add greatly to the value of earlier issues.
The Committee hopes to produce a journal once a year and also to sponsor other publications of local historical interest. We would ask our members and the public to help us to distribute these as widely as possible.
