Tribute to Mr McKay

Tribute to Mr McKay

A paragraph in the Annual Report paid tribute to the invaluable services rendered to the Society by the late Mr J. G. McKay. The President (Mr Baigent) enlarged on this and Mr Jenkins spoke to the meeting on some of Mr McKay's researches into early education in Nelson, reading a paper on that subject which Mr McKay had prepared.

Archdeacon H. F. Ault, in thanking Mr Jenkins, told how helpful Mr McKay had been to him when he was writing "The Nelson Narrative". He went over those portions of the book dealing with early education in Nelson with very great care; he even corrected my grammar here and there," remarked the Archdeacon amid laughter.
