Newspapers were a main source. The daily papers of the four main centres were used throughout: New Zealand Herald, Auckland Star (Auckland); Dominion, Evening Post (Wellington); Press, Christ- church Star–Sun (Christchurch); Otago Daily Times, Evening Star (Dunedin). To widen understanding, some larger provincial papers which were available in the General Assembly Library were consulted from time to time: Gisborne Herald, Grey River Argus, Grey- mouth Evening Star, Hawera Star, Hawke's Bay Daily Mail, Hawke's Bay Herald–Tribune, Napier Daily Telegraph, Nelson Evening Mail Oamaru Mail, Palmerston North Times, Patea and Waverley Press, Southland Daily News, Southland Times, Taranaki Daily News, Tar- anaki Herald, Timaru Herald, Wanganui Herald. Reports of particular incidents were sometimes available, often as clippings and therefore without pagination, from other local papers: Akaroa Mail, Bay of Plenty Beacon, Dannevirke Evening News, Hauraki Plains Gazette, Manawatu Times, North Auckland Times, Rotorua Morning Post, Taihape Times, Taumarunui Press, Thames Star, Waikato Times Wairarapa Times–Age, Wairoa Star, similarly some overseas clippings from News Chronicle, London Herald, The Times.

Weekly papers and general periodicals were useful, notably the New Zealand Listener, Standard, Tomorrow and Truth, also In Print, New Zealand Free Lance, New Zealand Observer, People's Voice, Workers' Weekly. Periodicals from the four main churches gave their points of view: the Anglican Church Chronicle and Official Gazette for the Diocese of Wellington, Church News (Christchurch) and Year Book of the Diocese of Auckland; the New Zealand Methodist Times; The Outlook of the Presbyterians; the Roman Catholic New Zealand Tablet and Zealandia. Similarly, trade unionists' attitudes were available in The Borer (later Union Record) of the carpenters and in the waterside workers' New Zealand Transport Worker, the Farmers' Union in Point Blank and Straight Furrow. The New Zealand Christian Pacifist Society had its cyclostyled Bulletin. University students spoke in their students' association publications: Auckland's Craccum and Kiwi, Wellington's Smad, Salient and Spike; Canterbury's Canta; Otago's Critic.
