Nelson Historical Society Journal, Volume 1, Issue 2, May 1957
In this Issue of the Nelson Historical Society's Journal, No. 2, will be found five addresses that have been delivered at meetings of the Society, all the subjects, we believe, being of sufficient historical interest to be worthy of record.
Our Journal No. 1 apparently was very well received, both in New Zealand and Overseas, for we have received numerous requests for inclusion in our mailing lists from highly appreciated sources. It is our hope, by the co-operation of the many talented historical researchers in our area, to average at least one publication each year.
Our Society is steadily increasing its membership, but is still greatly hampered by the lack of a suitable permanent building for storing records and exhibits. We hear, all too frequently, of irreplaceable documents bearing on our early days being either lost or destroyed. Our committee, however, is very active in endeavouring to obtain such a building, and we are very hopeful of success.
I trust readers will find the contents of this publication both interesting and informative.
