Journal of the Nelson and Marlborough Historical Societies, Volume 2, Issue 5, 1993


page 2

Members of both the Nelson and Marlborough Historical Societies will be pleased to see their Journal back in 1993, after an absence of two years. During that time the 150th Anniversary of Nelson's European settlement was marked by the publication of Nelson Notables by Max Lash. This was a major task, and thanks are due to Max and the editorial committee of Mike Johnston, Dawn Smith, Barney Brewster and Steve Bagley. Sales to date have almost recovered the printing costs, so it should be a financial success as well. One of the most important things our Societies can do is help to preserve historical detail in this area. The Journal plays a leading role in achieving this. In the 1993 issue we again have an excellent spread of articles covering a wide range of activities in the community many years ago. We are all indebted to those members with sufficient interest and dedication to research a subject to the stage where it can be published. As Editor of the Journal, Dawn Smith has again put in a lot of time fitting the contributions together into a valuable historical record. Our Societies are fortunate to have someone with her skill and interest to undertake this work. We will need a similar number of contributions for the Journal next year, so please keep up the good work.
