Nelson Historical Society Journal, Volume 6, Issue 5, 2002


page 2


It gives me great pleasure to introduce the 2002 Journal of the Nelson Historical Society. Our policy is to publish articles of original research and personal memories and reminiscences from our own members, and also from non-members. Any topic of Top of the South' interest is very welcome. It is a credit to our contributors that this is a larger journal than our previous ones. Please continue to send us your articles.

Five of the articles in this issue refer to Nelson city. I am especially pleased to mention the contribution from Anna Parker from Nelson College for Girls. She is the first winner of the Jeff Newport Memorial Prize for her research about the Theatre Royal. Three authors introduce us to noteworthy people from this area who truly need to be remembered in print. It is gratifying to see the article about Paynes Ford, as it is quite a while since we published anything about Golden Bay.

Our Patron, John Savage, is remembered in his obituary by Athol Blair. We shall miss John. His remarkable memory of Nelson life and times has often enlivened our meetings. Thank you to all our contributors. We appreciate your work and hope that others will be inspired to follow. Many thanks to our Editor, Dawn Smith, and also to computer-operator, Noelene Ford. I hope you, the readers, will enjoy our latest offering.

Jean Coulthard, President.
