Scots-New Zealand Print Trade Personnel, 1860-1920

Megan Simpson of Victoria University of Wellington has compiled data from primary and secondary sources on Scots originated print trade personnel in New Zealand to create a detailed listing of over 110 individuals active between the years 1860 to 1920.

We have turned the original Access file into a dynamic, searchable database to which further data can be added when received from interested parties, thus supporting a dynamic research tool that can grow as new material is gathered.

We would be interested in hearing from anyone who has further information to contribute to this database, either in terms of extra details for current entries or in terms of new entries and individuals that could be added to the list. Please address any such information to Professor David Finkelstein at
